Old Norse Lodge opened the doors of their luxury care home for their Summer Fayre and the aim of this was to raise as much money as possibLe for their chosen Charity ‘Sunflowers Children Action Group.’
The sun came out for the occasion, and the afternoon started with Nunny’s Farm bringing some of their animals for all to interact with. Nunny’s Farm is a local petting farm and they brought along a Shetland pony, Goats, Sheep, Ducks, Chickens, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs. There was lots of interest and lots of stroking and chatting about all the animals. Emily from the Farm was very informative and was coaxing everyone to pet the animals.
There was also a Raffle, Tombola and some yummy cake and sweet stalls.
Steve Barrie a local singer who regularly visits Old Norse Lodge was keeping everyone entertained with his selection of different songs and getting others to sing along with him. Everyone enjoyed this.
Steve also helped with drawing the raffle prizes and our unnamed Danforth Bear helped to give out the prizes to the lucky winners..
A lovely Buffett was prepared, and Maggie the Kitchen assistant had been busily baking cakes and her trademark scones, together with jam and cream of course. Some were purchased to eat at home and others were enjoyed by the residents of Old Norse Lodge.
Everyone helped support the chosen charity by guessing the name of the Danforth Bear. It was announced that the bear would be named ‘FREDDIE’ and upon looking at the entries, Shirley one of the residents had chosen that name. Shirley was presented with her own bear and as you can see was very happy about this.
The day was very busy and it was lovely to welcome members of the community into the home. Old Norse Lodge are looking forward to hosting their next event which is their very own Harvest Festival on the 1st October from 12:00 - 14:00 where they will be welcoming singer Emma Kelsey, followed by a delicious afternoon tea. The home will also be collecting donations for the local food bank too.
Danforth Care Homes are currently welcoming residents, If you or a loved one wish to find out more information or come along, explore the facilities, and meet the staff, you can do so by contacting the enquiry team.
