The recently opened Sanctuary Care home in Pensby, threw open the doors this week, hosting a special tea party for a national dementia charity fundraiser.
The team and residents at Ridgewood Court Residential Care Home on Ridgewood Drive welcomed people from their local community on Thursday 14 June to enjoy hot drinks and sweet treats for Alzheimer’s Society annual Cupcake Day.
The home, which provides residential and residential dementia care, raised £105 for the well-known dementia charity, with residents and their special guests enjoying scrumptious cupcakes made specially by the home’s chef, hot cups of tea and chitchat.

“It was nice getting to meet our local community and spend time with my fellow residents – the apple pies were delicious!”
The Sanctuary Care home’s manager Simon Doherty added: “Thank you so much to everyone who joined us to enjoy some cake and raise money for such a worthy cause – there was a real buzz about the home.
