Benholm barbeque for Care Home Open Day

National Care Home Open Day was celebrated in style this year at Benholm Care Home with music from entertainer Eddie Cairnie, which went down a storm with residents.

Care Home Open Day is celebrated each year by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community and provides a chance for people to see what life inside a home is really like.

There were treats to be had as residents perused stalls selling jewellery, handbags and candles and there were some lucky winners on the raffle and tombola, which contributed to overall fundraising of an incredible £570 for the Residents' Fund.

The event was very well attended by families and members of the local community, and the lovely weather meant that most people could sit outside and enjoy the barbeque.
