Ingleby Care Home

PIZZA, pints and prosecco have helped raise hundreds of pounds for Teesside care home residents.

A fundraising event was held at Lowfields Farm, near Stainton, for residents at Ingleby Care Home, Ingleby Barwick.

Pints of cider and lager, prosecco and soft drinks, a cake sale, pizzas, blow-up gladiator and sumo activities and a bouncy castle generated £621 in donations.

The farm is owned by the granddaughter of one of the home’s residents, Joyce Marsay.

Jayne Kendall threw the event after being impressed with the improvements in her grandmother’s mobility and sociability since moving into the care home.

A SLICE of fun was served to Stockton-on-Tees care home residents when they celebrated National Pizza Day.

The residents at Ingleby Care Home, in Ingleby Barwick, were treated to a trip to Frankie and Benny’s at Teesside Park for the day.

They attended a pizza party with all the ingredients to make their own Italian creations supplied by the restaurant free of charge.

Over a dozen residents and staff were joined by young adults from social care provider Vision25, which previously delivered shoeboxes full of Christmas gifts to the care home in December.

Their perfect pizza creations included a mixture of ham, pineapple, mushrooms, peppers, salami and the usual cheese and tomatoes.
