Residents at a Gateshead Care Home had a day of fun during its annual summer fair.
Craigielea Care Home treated residents and their families to a day filled with festivities and activities. An Elvis impersonator took everyone on a musical journey down memory lane, performing classic hits such as Suspicious Minds and Burning Love. Market style stalls offered an assortment of goodies creating a lively market atmosphere in the grounds of the home.
The fair featured a sizzling BBQ with residents and guests being served freshly grilled hot dogs and burgers and the day was packed with an array of engaging activities, including traditional fair games, live entertainment, bringing a sense of camaraderie that truly showcased the spirit of the home, and supporting local businesses.
Kimberley Metters, Service Support Manager said, “This year’s fair has been a huge success and has helped us raise significant funds towards our planned activities. It was great to have a wide range of events from Elvis to the coconut shy!
“It was also lovely seeing the residents enjoying themselves and engaging with the memory invoking music. These activities are crucial for our resident’s wellbeing as well as keeping them active and encouraging socialising.”
