Gracewell of Sway Celebrates May Fayre

Gracewell  |  June 17, 2019

Gracewell of Sway on Church Lane is celebrating the success of its recent May Fayre.

The event saw over 200 visitors join team members and residents on the day, including friends, family, neighbours and members of the local community.

The event featured a 1950s-style car display, interactive games and activities and live 1950s-themed entertainment. A fantastic dog show also saw lots of entries with classes including ‘waggliest tail’ and ‘young handler.’

Guests also enjoyed cream tea and Pimms throughout the day and browsed a wide range of market stalls with products from local businesses on offer.

Overall, the May Fayre raised a total of £677 for the charity Forca, a local organisation supporting those living with cancer in Hampshire and Dorset.

Hannah, a representative of Forca, said:

“Thank you to Gracewell for letting us be a part of the Fayre. We are incredibly grateful to be the beneficiary of the money raised. Every penny will be put to good use.”

Helen Lennox, Home Admissions Advisor at Gracewell of Sway, said:

“The event was such just amazing. Everyone had a fantastic time and we were delighted that so many took that time out to attend and to help us raise money for an important cause. Thank you all for coming.”

Gracewell of Sway residents, Colin and Jean Evans, said:

“Gracewell of Sway arranged a superb gala. The sun shone most of the afternoon, which enabled the many stall-holders to sell – from cakes to homemade jewellery. The singer entertained the vast crowd with all the old favourites. There was also a super cream tea created by the Gracewell chefs and served by the staff.”
