On Saturday 20th July, we held our summer party for residents, their families, friends and staff. Fortunately the weather was kind to us and we had a beautifully sunny day. The garden was decorated with balloons and bunting, some of which had been made by the residents and the kitchen staff did a great job with the barbecue. There were cocktails also and an ice cream van so we could cool off with something sweet whilst a magician went round the tables entertaining the guests and we enjoyed a group sing-along. We held a raffle during the event and, combined with the proceeds from the sale of craft items created by the residents, will be donating the money raised to our local church to buy clothes for the homeless in London.
