Thank you to everyone who came along and helped make our Summer gala 2017 such a huge success! What a great day we had.
On the days running up to Saturday 15th July residents and staff worked hard to make sure everything was ready
So on Saturday morning with Tombola goodies wrapped, raffle prizes displayed, barbecue set up , bouncy castle inflated, bar manned and ready, homebakes packaged up to sell, enough tea and goodies for most of Aberdeen we opened the doors at 11am sharp.
Friends and family were piped in as they arrived.A man in a kilt always puts a smile on everyones face and our man was no exception!
The Tombola is always a favourite and there were 3 volunteers behind the counter keeping up with demand for tickets. From bottles of whisky to sets of cutlery and a myriad of other generous donations they sold out and fast!
The weather was the one thing we couldn’t organise but undaunted the staff moved the bouncy castle inside so despite the rain it could be enjoyed by all. And it was – as you can see here…
An endless stream of visitors took part in all the entertainment and enjoyed gallons of tea and kilos of home bakes, and try as it might the rain did not daunt anyone from heading out to the BBQ where burgers and hot dogs went down a storm too.
Diane Livingston – our fabulous Home Manager – introduced everyone and still going strong at the end of the day drew the raffle to a packed room. Shrieks of delight and surprise as the generous donations were liberally spread out amongst all.
We will post the final total of our fundraising as soon as we have it. But we wanted firstly to say a huge THANK YOU to you for supporting the day and making residents and staff feel very special indeed. We are already looking forward to next year……….
