Pat Scappaticci, the Head of Retirement Housing and Caretaking Services at Northwards Housing reports:-
"We held a very successful event for retirement scheme residents at a number of schemes in the area, local residents and councillors attended. The event was funded by fundraising by residents through a series of raffles and events.
The surplus following lunch, £525.00, is being donated to 'Help for Heroes' as the charity of choice of the residents
We had a lovely lunch prepared by staff from Northwards Housing Retirement Housing Service of chicken breast, salad new potatoes, strawberries, shortbread and cream. Celebration Cake was served with sangria and bucks fizz.
Ken from one of our retirement housing schemes was the DJ and played a fantastic array of tunes for all to sing and dance to. We finished with the raffles -a range of lovely hampers, donated by Northwards Housing
Everyone had a wonderful day and were pleased that it also resulted in fundraising for Help the Heroes"
Congratulations to you all from the team here at Dignity in Care! Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all - wish that we'd been there.
