Community Rallies Around Care Home as it Raises Over £1500 from Summer Fayre

A Wolverhampton care home managed to raise more than £1500 from their summer fayre.

MHA Waterside House organised the fayre, the first one of its kind since the pandemic.

It was packed full of activities and events for the whole family including a pirate hunt for children, bouncy castle, and plenty of stalls.

A cabaret show was also part of the entertainment, along with plenty of refreshments in the form of burgers, chips, tea and coffee.

More than 200 people attended and supported the home, with the proceeds going towards their amenity fund.

Michelle Jones, activity coordinator said: “The fayre went well, and we were very proud of the way the community came out and supported us.

“The total amount raised was £1580, which is a monumental effort, especially as we only had the fayre for three hours.

“We had a family who set up a stall and donated all their taking to us which was a lovely touch.

“There was a great mix of people with family members of all ages coming down.

“The funds will go towards some activities and events for the Christmas period, and based on the success of the fayre, we are planning to do something for next Easter.

“I want to thank everyone who came to the fayre and supported us, it was a great effort from everyone, and we are very happy.”
