More than �2,000 raised at annual fete and car boot at Whittlesey’s Hermitage Care Home

RESIDENTS of The Hermitage Care Home of Whittlesey said thank you in style, after a massive �2,250 was raised at their annual fete and car boot held in glorious sunshine on Saturday.

Crowds of people supported the event, which included a popular drinks raffle, as well as a cake stall, refreshment stall and some genuine car booters who return each year.

Gay Thory-Burgess, assistant manager, said: “Many local businesses very kindly donated raffle prizes as did family members and friends of our residents.

“The day was a fantastic success, the money raised will go into the residents’ comfort fund. This pays for such things as trips out to the seaside, theatre trips, in-Home entertainment and anything else that the residents want to make happen.

“We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated something, everyone who helped out on the day and to everyone for coming along and supporting us. “
