Oh we’re going to miss this party season in our Abbeyfield houses, although we can’t deny we’re almost ready for a rest! We’ve had an absolute blast. At our house in Hanham we had a wonderful Christmas party for the residents and their family. It was a huge success with a massive turn out! There was a brass band as entertainment, who played all of our Christmas favourites. The buffet went down a storm and everyone loved the homemade mulled wine. Ivana, our cook, won the favourite raffle prize – a designer handbag donated by Harding Retail – and a set of Swarovski cuff links were won by resident, Mary.

Thanks so much to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle – We raised a whopping £150 with the raffle which will go on to fund our crafting sessions in 2018.

Everyone had a really great time and it was a perfect way wrap up to Kift Lodge’s Christmas celebrations.
