Abbotsleigh Care Home hosts Hawaiian summer fete

We were excited to welcome family and friends to Abbotsleigh Care Home on Saturday 17 August to enjoy our sunny summer fete – Hawaiian style!

We had fun Hawaiian decorations, photo props and a palm tree bouncy castle, not forgetting grass skirts, flower garlands and pineapples a plenty!

We were lucky to have nice weather, so we made the most of our garden and enjoyed socialising over fruit juices, non-alcoholic punches and wine.

Our Hawaiian food was different but delicious! We served…

  • Ham and pineapple fried rice inside half a pineapple
  • Pulled pork buns
  • Meatballs with salsa dips
  • Chicken and pepper skewers
  • Hawaiian pizza
  • Fruit for dessert or pineapple upside down cake

We were wonderfully entertained by two fantastic hula dancers who looked stunning in their colourful outfits. They did three sets of dancing and singing, which included three costume changes!

During the fete we held a raffle which raised a wonderful £224, which we will put together with other money we have raised from previous raffles and use to pay for resident trips and lunch outings.

Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a memorable event.
