Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

RES­I­DENTS at a care home cel­e­brated over the fes­tive pe­riod at their very own win­ter fair.

Barch­ester’s Prest­bury Beau­mont care home in the vil­lage or­gan­ised the event for its res­i­dents and guests while also rais­ing money for East Cheshire Hospice.

And the Beau­mont’s fair was in full swing as 13 lo­cal stalls sold an ar­ray of dif­fer­ent goods and the Prest­bury Girls Choir pro­vided at­ten­dees with en­ter­tain­ment by per­form­ing a range of clas­sic songs.

Staff from the Beau­mont, which is off Col­lar House Drive in Prest­bury, were also put in charge of sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets and re­fresh­ments to raise money for the hospice.

Bev­er­ley Davies, the home’s gen­eral man­ager, said: “We are very pleased that we could hold and event like this for the hospice and gen­er­ate such a good level of attendance.

“With the con­tri­bu­tion of all the lo­cal sup­pli­ers plus the Prest­bury Girls Choir we man­aged to have a great fair and raised money for such a great cause.

“It was clear from the laugh­ter and smiles dur­ing the event that ev­ery­one re­ally en­joyed the day and con­trib­uted as ev­ery­one left smil­ing and full handed. Our res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies were a strong support at the event.

“Ev­ery­one that came, whether a res­i­dent or a guest who just popped by, felt at home and en­joyed the af­ter­noon eat­ing the chef’s short­breads and drink­ing a de­li­cious mulled wine while lis­ten­ing to the an­gel­i­cal voices of the lo­cal choir.

“We would like to think that Prest­bury Beau­mont has built up an ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion within its lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties for pro­vid­ing fun events that bring peo­ple to­gether.

“The home is con­stantly hold­ing events and ac­tiv­i­ties for its res­i­dents and lo­cal vis­i­tors and is reg­u­larly spon­sor­ing lo­cal char­i­ties.”
