We held our Annual Summer Gala on Saturday 10th August. Thankfully it turned out to be a lovely day 😊 which allowed us to enjoy our barbeque outdoors, which is something of a miracle for a planned barbeque with our inclement Aberdeen weather!
Our two chefs Dave and Miro provided delicious hamburgers with relish, hotdogs and macaroni and cheese, which could be washed down with soft drinks or a Bucks Fizz!
Guests were welcomed to Northcote by the stirring sounds of the bagpipes and were later entertained in the café area by one of our regular entertainers, Bob Wilson, who sang a melody of songs which everyone could sing along to.
There were a variety of stalls, with something for everyone, which included our famous Northcote home bakes, a flower stall, jewellery stall and a special ‘Resident’s Fun Stall’. We also had a tombola and raffles with some fantastic prizes, the top prize being afternoon tea for 4 at the New Marcliffe Hotel. We also had a ‘Kids Corner’ with bouncy castle and face painting!
It was very well attended by residents, relatives and friends of Northcote and together we managed to raise a whopping £2,700!! The money will go towards funding our ‘Sensory Garden Project’ which is still in the planning stage but promises to be a lovely area for our residents to explore and enjoy.
