The event was held to raise money for the charity, which many people supported, and was also a great opportunity for the tenants to have a social experience with both family and friends, after being unable to do so throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Manager Vicky Smallwood, who organised the fun day, said: “Everyone had a fun time and I was overwhelmed by all the kindness and generosity of the people in our community, including local businesses.”
