Our fete raises funds for one of our favourite charities

September 24th 2013

The Silversprings summer fete was a great success and today we welcomed the Alzheimer’s Society to our home to present them with a cheque from the proceeds.

In August our fete raised £240 and residents and their families decided to split the money between the residents’ fund and the Alzheimer’s Society, so we were delighted when the charity’s regional representative Anne Coup-Harris was able to come along to receive the cheque.

Our manager Sally Rushant said: “Our home offers specialist dementia care and the Alzheimer’s Society has given help and support to many of our residents and their families.

“The team and relatives worked very hard to make our fete a success and the residents enjoyed the presentation and meeting Anne.”

Silversprings is set in stunning countryside near Colchester and has lots to offer residents of all interests and abilities. In the grounds you can discover sensory gardens and nature walks, as well as doves, ducks and chickens, who are always happy to be fed.
