Family, friends and people from the local community joined with staff and residents for a day of fun and games at Kenilworth Manor Care Home – raising more than £400 for resident activities.

The event included a raffle, tombola and cake stand at the Thickthorn Orchards home, alongside a range of stalls selling handbags, cakes and crafts.

Residents also made their own Easter bonnets.

Maria Harrington, care manager at Kenilworth Manor, said: “We had a wonderful day at our Easter fete and it was made all the better by so many of our residents’ families and friends coming to show their support.

“We wanted our residents to be as creative and as colourful as possible with their Easter bonnets, and I have to say there were some wonderful designs and everyone loved getting involved.

“The money raised will go towards activities for the residents, which helps to give them so many new experiences which is so important in later life.”

Owned and operated by the Clarendon Care Group, the three-storey Victorian mansion was built in the 1820s and restored in 1987.
