Wow, our Christmas fairs at both Cramlington House and West Farm Care Centre were absolutely fantastic with Cramlington House raising £1,400 and West Farm £805.
We had such a wonderful turnout and we would like to thank each and every one of you who came along; we hope you had a brilliant time.
The staff and residents worked really hard to ensure there were lots on offer including stalls brimming with festive food and drink, lots of games as well as a tombola and raffle that took place.
Emma Jones, our Communications Manager, said: “The fairs at both homes went incredibly well and there was a great turnout from family and friends of residents and staff as well as those who live locally.
“It was wonderful to see everyone have fun, get involved with the various games that has been arranged and also take part in the prize draws. We also received a visit from a very special visitor; Santa Claus himself that went down a treat especially with the children who came along on the day.
“Both fairs raised nearly £2,300 collectively which is incredible. All of the money raised will be donated to the residents’ fund we have at each home that’s used to help pay for social occasions and outings for the residents, so all donations really are appreciated!”
"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
