Fire Brigade attend care home summer fayre

FIRE safety was the talk of the fayre at a Middlesbrough care home.

Cleveland Fire Brigade attended the annual summer celebration at The Gables Care Home, on Highfield Road.

They spoke with visitors, residents, staff and children about fire safety as part of their community programme.

There was also a raffle, tombola, bric-a-brac stalls selling jewellery, handmade crafts, hair accessories, decorative handmade flowers, cakes and baked goods, as well as a BBQ and refreshments.

LGBT charity Hart Gables had an information stand at the event and The Gables’ home manager got a sponsored soaking with wet sponges thrown by donators.

They raised £197 on the day for the residents’ fund, which contributes to outings for the home’s residents.

Kate Charlton, home manager at The Gables Care Home, said: “The annual summer fayre is always a highlight of the year for residents, their families and staff.

“We had a great turnout again this year and raised an amazing amount for the residents’ fund.

“We’d like to thank everyone who donated as well as the Cleveland Fire Brigade for attending and discussing fire safety.

“We’re also grateful to Hart Gables for their continued support of the home, the stall vendors for their contributions and everyone else who helped out on the day.”
