Easter fayres raise hundreds for Teesside care homes

EASTER was celebrated at care homes across Teesside – with bonnet making masterclasses and fayres.

The Gables Care Home, in Middlesbrough, and Ingleby Care Home, in Ingleby Barwick, were among those to mark the occasion with a variety of activities.

At The Gables, residents created Easter bonnets, adorned with bunny ears, fluffy chicks, brightly coloured eggs and other decorations.

A raffle of chocolate eggs helped raise over £110 for the residents’ fund, which pays for day trips throughout the year.

The home also held a special lunch, dancing and singing to round-off the celebrations.

Resident Ann Barker said: “I wish the weather was as nice as our Easter hats.”

Kate Charlton, acting home manager at The Gables Care Home, on Highfield Road, said: “All our residents had a wonderful Easter celebrating in many different ways.

“Those lucky few who won the Easter egg hampers from the raffle were kind enough to share their chocolates with the rest, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

“We’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket and helped raise a great amount for our residents’ fund.”

In Stockton-on-Tees, at Ingleby Care Home an Easter Fayre helped raise over £245 for their residents’ fund.

Residents’ relatives donated eggs for a tombola and cakes for a raffle. Meal vouchers were also donated for prizes by the Arc Stockton, Fryer Tucks fish shop, the Myton Arms in Ingleby Barwick, and Thornaby pubs The Roundel and The Griffin.

A cake stall sold cupcakes baked by the Ingleby Care Home kitchen staff to help with the fundraising.

Resident Joyce Marsay’s daughter Christine Cooper baked a cake for the raffle, won by the home’s deputy manager Kayleigh Duncan.

Joyce said: “I’m so pleased Kayleigh won the cake Christine baked. I’m sure she’ll enjoy it.”

Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator at Ingleby Care Home, on Lamb Lane, said: “Fantastic support from the residents and their families made our Easter Fayre a huge success.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to those who came along and bought a ticket for the tombola and raffle as well as to those local businesses who donated prizes.

“The community support we receive at Ingleby Care Home is so important and means a huge amount to our residents.”

The Gables and Ingleby care homes are part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit
