Cream tea helps charity

RESIDENTS and staff at a care home raised more than £350 for charity when they held a summer cream tea with stalls and entertainment.

The event at Quarry Court in Adelaide Place was held on May 24 from 2pm-5pm, in aid of Dementia UK.

Bristol entertainer Frankie Johns came over to sing at the event and there were also stalls selling sweets, bric-a-brac, plants and mobility items and a raffle.

Visitors to the event had a welcome drink of Prosecco or sangria before tucking in to a cream tea with freshly baked scones, jam, cream and strawberries.

Around 45 visitors, including residents, attended and the total raised for Dementia UK was £356.50.

A spokeswoman for Bristol Care Homes, which runs Quarry Court, said: “We enjoyed the day and some of the residents were delighted to win a few raffle prizes.”
