Fun In The Sun Raises £400 For Essex Care Home Residents

St Joseph’s care home opened its doors to friends and family of residents to celebrate in the sunshine at its annual summer fair.

St Joseph’s, based on Gay Bowers Road in Chelmsford, invited the residents’ friends and family to join them for a fun day of barbeque, cakes, stalls and a bouncy castle. The staff held a bake-off contest, where prizes were given for taste, looks and creativity, and the afternoon was rounded off with two musical performances by Robert Jerome and Tanya Honey.

The event raised £400 to help fund resident activities and events throughout the year.

Joanne Scott, Home Manager at St Joseph’s, said: “The St Joseph’s summer fair is always a highlight in the year for staff and residents. It was lovely to see so many friends and family coming in and having fun in the warm weather with the residents. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.

“I’m delighted that we raised such a significant amount of money for our residents at the event. Their happiness is fundamental to St Joseph’s, and this money will allow us to deliver even more stimulating activities for them to enjoy.”

St Joseph’s forms part of Forest Pines Care Limited and provides nursing care for up to 41 older people.
