Wow, what a huge success our Christmas fayre was!
We raised over £1,000 and we cannot believe it! It was fantastic and the efforts we put in to making it a Christmas event to remember for our residents and their loved ones certainly paid off.
From cake, jewellery and bric a brac stalls to tombolas, delicious food and drink and amazing raffle prizes – there was something for everyone. Residents, their relatives and staff members really enjoyed themselves with lots getting dressed up in Christmas fancy dress and taking part in the games arranged too.
To make the Christmas fayre extra special we also celebrated one of the resident’s birthdays. Joan Askew turned 94 and we all sang Happy Birthday to her, presenting her with a gorgeous chocolate and cherry birthday cake handmade by our talented kitchen chefs.
We’re delighted that we raised £1,165 at the fayre which is an absolutely amazing achievement! The full amount will be donated to our residents’ fund which is used to take residents out on extra special day trips or to engage with local providers who offer specialist activities designed to enhance the quality of life for our residents. What a wonderful day, thank you to everyone who was involved!
"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."
