RESIDENTS at a Wigan care home were delighted when they raised more than £310 at their annual summer fete.

Staff at Dean Wood Manor in Orrell held the activity day to entertain the elderly residents and their families and collect extra funds for the home.

Activities coordinator, Cat Martland, said: “We had an amazing turn out with everybody’s family and friends coming to support us. The residents really enjoyed, it keeps them active and enables them to bond with others. I’m so happy with the amount we raised.”
