Holywell House Care Centre recently hosted its annual summer fair and it was a tremendous success! Residents, their relatives, and staff came together for a day filled with fun, laughter and togetherness.
The fair featured an array of exciting activities, with raffles and tombolas a key highlight. Those who attended eagerly took part, hoping to win attractive prizes generously donated by local businesses and supporters. Alongside the fun and games, a variety of small businesses set up stalls offering delicious homemade food including pies, cakes, and jams.
The community’s support was overwhelming and thanks to all involved, an impressive £1,213 was raised. This will be donated to the residents’ fund, which plays a vital role in enhancing their quality of life.
Julie McMurrough, the manager of Holywell House Care Centre, said; “The annual summer fair is always a special day for us. It not only brings our residents and their families together but also showcases the tremendous support we receive from the local community. The funds raised will allow us to provide our residents with unforgettable outings, specialist care activities, and day trips, which greatly enrich their lives. Thank you so much for all of your very generous donations, especially during a time when the cost of living is so high, we massively appreciate it.”
"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."
