Residents, families and members of the local community from Northumberland came together to enjoy the festivities at Holywell House Care Centre in Holywell, as they raised a whopping £1,165 at their annual Christmas fayre.

The team at Holywell House organised an afternoon of fun activities, including stalls selling homemade cards, jewellery, cakes and mince pies, a tombola and lots of raffle prizes. 

Julie McMurrough, manager at Holywell House, said:

“It was wonderful to host our fabulous Christmas fayre, which our residents and relatives really enjoyed. The team put so much work into organising the event and it definitely went down a storm.

“From freshly made chutney and whiskey marmalade to some amazing raffle prizes and Christmas music, the afternoon was a brilliant affair. The residents were thoroughly engaged and enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit. Huge thanks to everyone who attended, and we’re amazed that we managed to raise nearly £1,200 for our residents’ funds. This is used to take residents out on extra special day trips or to engage with local providers who offer specialist activities designed to enhance the quality of life for our residents. What a wonderful day.”

People were welcome to come in Christmas festive dress and there were lots of raffle prizes to be won with a tombola to enter.

Pauline Brodie, a resident, said:

“I really enjoyed the Christmas fayre and spending time with my family getting all festive. The music, the food and the drinks really got me looking forward to Christmas. I had a lovely time.”
