TRADITIONAL fayre games have helped a Bolton care home raise over a thousand pounds for their residents’ fund.
A raffle, tombola, hook-a-duck, gin stall and more were available at the Lever Edge Care Home summer fayre.
Prizes were donated from Waburtons bakery and Matt Galimor, a Morrisons butcher, among others.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service also came to the home with a fire engine for the day for visitors to see and sit inside.
Residents, staff, their family members and friends of the home all helped to make the day a success – raising over £1,140.
The money will help towards outings for those living at the home, on Lever Edge Lane, Great Lever.
Lisa Martin, home manager at Lever Edge Care Home, said: “A huge thank you to all the volunteers that helped out for the day, including Stephen Phillips, husband of our deputy manager, for helping out on the gin fizz stall.
“We’d also like to say thank you to Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service for coming along and giving guests the opportunity to look around their state-of-the-art fire engine.
“The day was a huge success and we raised a fantastic amount for our residents fund, which will go a long way to helping with day trips for our residents throughout the year.”
