December 6, 2018

FATHER Christmas made an appearance at a Chester-le-Street care home’s festive fayre – helping to raise over £1,000 for residents.

The event at Pelton Grange Care Home, on Front Street, attracted dozens of visitors, including family and friends of residents and staff.

Santa’s grotto, jewellery and bric-a-brac stalls, homemade Christmas cards, cakes and hotdogs all helped raise £1,016.

The money will be added to the residents’ fund, which helps pay for events, activities and outings throughout the year.

Resident Florence Besford said: “It’s lovely to see you, Father Christmas.

Christopher Hogan-Hind, home manager at Pelton Grange Care Home, said: “A massive thank you to everyone who came along and supported our Christmas fayre.

“We had a fantastic turnout and everyone had a wonderful time, including our residents, who enjoyed meeting Santa and chatting to visitors.Father Christmas helps raise over £1,000 for care home residents
