On 17th August we threw open our doors for our BIG fundraiser, The Summerdyne Summer Fayre. Our residents thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially hosting their families, friends and the local community.
Sunshine for our Summer Fayre
The weather is always a worry and a constant topic of conversation on the run up to the day! Thankfully however, the sun shone for the day!
We had live music from JDR, which created a real party atmosphere. Residents and their families could sing and toe-tap along, whilst enjoying the refreshments.
We also had lots of stalls, all adding to the fundraising and fun. Our Having a Yarn Craft Group were super busy before the big day, creating lovely gifts. All perfect for the little ones visiting – the knitted sloths were a favourite!
We received some very generous donations of plants for our plant stall. Also chutneys, jams, Cherry Bakewells and other cakes galore for the cake stall. We had books donated for the book stall, bottles for the bottle stall and lots of items for the raffle hampers.
We also had a Guess the Weight of the Teddy competition, with an enormous donated teddy bear!
The Residents Fund
All the proceeds from the Summer Fayre go towards Summerdyne’s Residents Fund. We raised over £700, which is fabulous!
The Residents Fund is solely to enhance the well-being and happiness of our residents. It enables us to give those extra treats and touches throughout the year. It helps us fund things such as entertainers, outings, craft project, theatre trips, Easter eggs, presents and Christmas gifts.
