Fun on the green

A family fun day organised by our two Winchester care homes attracted more than 200 visitors and raised £800 for charity.

Abbotts Barton and St Catherines View came up with the idea as a means of engaging with local families while supporting the Winchester Hospice.

The event, held on a green next to Abbotts Barton, featured live music, children’s activities, a barbecue and stalls selling cakes, crafts and plants.

Resident June Bell (pictured in the red top) said: “It was a wonderful day and I spent quite a few hours just soaking up the atmosphere.”

Home Manager Dee Lovewell said: “One visitor told me it was lovely to see the green being used for such a worthwhile cause and they emphasised how much their children enjoyed the festivities.”
