Thank you to all staff, residents, families, friends, neighbours and local businesses who supported our fundraising event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and in memory of Eileen, one of our lovely residents who sadly passed away recently. We raised an amazing £180. The day involved a raffle with prizes kindly donated by local businesses – Thomas the Bakers, Hunters of Helmsley and the Star at Harome along with prizes donated by families members and staff. We had a pets on parade competition and took lots of selfies! Here are a few photos:
3 Residents, Bill, Jenny and Betty had a great time meeting old and new friends at Musical Memories in Kirkbymoorside a couple of weeks ago. It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours and we plan to do more outings to Musical Memories in the future.
