Whitstable Care Home Raises More Than £650 to Support Home by Hosting Summer Sale

A Whitstable care home managed to raise more than £650 to support their amenity fund for activities for residents.

MHA Bradbury Grange hosted a summer sale and raised £678 which included various stalls such as arts and crafts, bric-a-brac and a cake sale.

The home, which offers residential and residential dementia care for 50 residents, organised the sale in the front lawn of the home.

It was an open community event, with local people also coming forward to sell items to contribute towards the cause.

Aside from the items to sell, there was a barbeque with burgers and also a tombola and raffle sale.

Sadie Porteous, home manager, said:

“A summer sale is something we used to do quite frequently here at MHA Bradbury Grange but due to the pandemic we haven’t been able to do so for a couple of years.

“We started planning this a couple of months ago and it was great to see so many people come out and support us.

“The weather was nice and we had plenty of people wandering in and out during the course of the day.

“The money raised will go a long way in supporting other activities and events at the home and we are very happy with the amount raised.

“Our residents really enjoyed the day and had plenty of fun participating in whatever they could

“I would like to thank all the staff members and volunteers who helped to make it a success and it was a very enjoyable day.”
