Strawberries, cream teas and Pimm’s were the order of the day at a care home fundraiser today.

The event at Halsey House Royal British Legion home in Cromer was enjoyed by residents, families, friends and holidaymakers.

It was the second strawberries and Pimm’s summer event at Halsey House, which raised money for its amenities fund.

The fund will go towards a new mini bus, trips out to museums, theatre shows and the Royal Norfolk Show, as well as art sessions for residents.

Tina Gray, head of activities, said: “It is events like this that bring residents together. They love it. It is also an opportunity for the community to get involved.”

She added the trips and activities gave the residents a sense of wellbeing.

Halsey House Volunteer Keith Broom, from North Walsham, said the fundraising event was fantastic and brought families together.

Future fundraisers for the amenities fund will be an annual summer fete at the home on Norwich Road on August 10 and a the Carole Broom Memorial Shield golf tournament at Swaffham Golf Club on September 1.

Halsey House, owned by the legion, cares for more than 80 residents who are all ex-service men and women and spouses of former service personnel.
