Pre-Covid, as we are a charity, we organised a variety of fundraising events every year to which all proceeds went toward our residents’ fund.
Hopefully in the near future we can resume our fundraising events. Below is a few of the events we have hosted:
In spring we gather for our annual Daffodil Tea for a lovely morning and a slice of something nice in the company of our dear residents. There were a number of stalls which include flowers, home bakes, crafts and jewellery. We also have a fantastic raffle with many prizes.
During August we host one of our biggest events, which is ‘The Northcote Gala’. Every year we keep our fingers crossed tightly for favourable weather. Our Head Chef always provides an excellent barbeque, and there are also variety of stalls to browse as well as a raffle with fantastic prizes.
We couldn’t let Guy Fawkes go by without a celebration, ‘Northcote’ style. This is usually private event for our residents and relatives and is marked with a fantastic display of fireworks! we also have hot chocolate with marshmallows, hotdogs and hamburgers after the fireworks display.
During the festive period a good time is always guaranteed as we have lots of social activities for our residents to enjoy, to include visiting choirs, pantomimes and entertainers.
On Christmas Eve we always have live entertainment accompanied by mulled wine or bucks of fizz and mince pies.
