A care home based in Stanmore held a fun day in Aldenham Country Park to raise money for its new facility.
Jewish Care saw more than 2,000 people attend the family day on Sunday, June 16, raising a record-breaking £27,000 to enhance the lives of its residents at Sandringham care home.
The morning rain didn’t put guests off and families, Jewish Care supporters and members of the local community came out to enjoy an afternoon of fun, food entertainment on Father’s Day.
Younger children took part in a wide range of fun-filled activities from ball ponds and biscuit decorating at the Jewish Care Families play area to face paints in the arts and crafts zone and carousel and teacup rides.
For older children there were plenty more active fair-ground challenges to choose from including, go karts, bungee trampolines, human demolition zone and Laser Quest.
Eliana, 7, said: “I’ve been on the Go Karts, jumped on the human demolition zone and made biscuits, it’s been really good!”
Speaking after the event, chair of the Family Fun Day Special Events Committee, Brian Eisenberg, from Pinner, said: “Our Family Fun Day our second in Aldenham Country Park Events Field was a great success and it was fantastic to see so many people from the local community enjoying themselves.”
The Family Fun Day comes only a few months since the residents moved from Princess Alexandra Home into the new Anita Dorfman House.
The move marks the completion of the first stage of Jewish Care’s ambitious Sandringham development.
The second stage of works are now underway and will see the building of Pears Court, 48 independent living apartments and The Ronson Family Community Centre – a community hub for residents and visitors alike.
Works will be complete in Autumn 2020.
