Saturday 23rd July saw Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton transformed into a fairground, as people came from far and wide for the summer fete.
Patricia Coiley, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a fantastic time at our fun fair. We were entertained by the West Newton Jazz Band and there were lots of things for people to get involved in. There were games, cream teas, raffle, tombola, cake stall, Bric-A-Brac stall and jewelry stall. We even had some stocks, where members of our care team went to get a wet sponge in the face. But it was all in aid of our residents so we were all happy to take turns.
“The event was a huge success, and we managed to raise £854 for our Resident Activity Fund which will be used to cover the cost of activities including musical entertainment, art therapy lessons and other special experiences.
“I want to thank everyone who came for making the day a success.”
