Victoria Care Home in St Helens was packed to the rafters last weekend as the home put on its annual summer fair.
Victoria Kelly, Home Manager, explained: “We hold our summer fair roughly this time every year. We welcome everyone from the local community into our home, and this year seemed to be a massive success. We welcome a lot of people through our doors. The residents enjoyed speaking to new faces, telling them their stories and passing on their words of wisdom.
“As with any fair, we had lots of things to do. As a result of the generosity of everyone who came, we raised over £500 for our residents fund. This will help us to fund special experiences for our residents, which will be really nice. I want to thank everyone who came to the event; you helped to make it a success.”
As part of the day, the home released 50 yellow balloons in a balloon race, to see how far they would travel.
Victoria Kelly added, “The balloons had a little message for whoever found them, asking them to let us know where the balloon had landed. We’ve received our first response all of the way from West Yorkshire! It’ll be interesting to see where the other 49 have got to.”
