On Sunday 31st July 2016, The Model Care Home in Ballymoney held their Summer BBQ event, putting on a treat to those who visited the home.
Maggie Jess, Home Manager, explained: “Our Summer BBQ was a huge success, which was definitely helped by the fact that the sun was shining.
“We had lots of things for people to do and see including 30 vintage vehicles which were displayed in the grounds and musical entertainment provided by local singer Alistair Coyles.
“Here at the home we wanted to give something back to our local community, so we held a Macmillan ‘coffee morning’ during the event. Thanks to everyone’s kind donations we raised £140 for this good cause, which is fantastic. I want to thank everyone who donated.”
Whilst the home was raising money for Macmillan, they were surprised when they received a kind donation for their own resident’s fund, which enables them to provide special experiences for those in their care. The Ballymoney Old Vehicle Club raised £500 and presented the residents with a cheque at the BBQ.
Maggie Jess, Home Manager, added: “We were extremely humbled to receive the donation from the Ballymoney Old Vehicle Club. This money will help us to provide a variety of different experiences for our residents, based on their likes and dislikes.
“I’m really glad this event was a success. I look forward to seeing what next year will bring!”
