Sun shines on gar­den party fundraiser for care home

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than 160 peo­ple took ad­van­tage of some glo­ri­ous weather on Satur­day to raise nearly £1,300 for a care home.

Brad­bury House Care Home held a fundrais­ing gar­den party at trustee Jeff Med­lock’s House, on Austen­wood Lane, Chal­font St Peter, which lasted from 2pm un­til 4.30pm.

The care home, based in Bea­cons­field and run by the Abbey­field Bea­cons­field So­ci­ety, pro­vides sup­port and care for the el­derly.

It is a reg­is­tered char­ity and Satur­day’s event aimed to help peo­ple who stay at the home if they fall into fi­nan­cial dis­tress.

Mr Med­lock, who has been trustee of the char­ity for six years and chair­man of the trustees for three years, said: “We had a very suc­cess­ful day.”

He added: “We had more than 160 vis­i­tors and raised nearly £1,300 on the day for Brad­bury House.

“As the weather was very nice, ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy the gar­den and they took full ad­van­tage of the re­fresh­ments pro­vided.”
