Alice in Wonderland inspires charity fundraising

Residents at Newton House Care Home raised money for charity by enjoying an Alice in Wonderland themed coffee morning.

Joined by friends and family, the event raised more than £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Talented resident artist Robin Miller even sold one of his own beautiful paintings to raise cash for the appeal.

Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach Marianne Fernandez-Faichney, dressed up as Queen of Hearts for the event.

She was joined by nurse Emily who dressed as the Mad Hatter and Clinical Lead Theresa who appeared as Rabbit.

Marianne said: “We wanted to make it extra special so we decided to theme our coffee morning and we all love Alice in Wonderland, the costumes were lovely.

“Residents enjoyed watching us!”

One of Newton’s Homemakers Javier thrilled everyone with his mini concert when he played the violin.  

And for those who love a good quiz, Homemaker Rachel, tested everyone with her general knowledge competition.

Marianne added: “It was a morning full of laughter and a great experience!”

The total amount raised so far is £342 which will be handed to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.
