There was plenty going on at the Maycroft Residential Home event, including lots of different stalls.

Care home manager Lynn Ward said: “After a rainy and worrying start to the day due to inclement weather, the sky cleared allowing residents and staff to enjoy opening their stalls to the local community.

“As usual the Meldreth villagers supported us so well with residents so pleased to see them visiting the home.

“Stalls included a huge raffle with all prizes provided by generous local businesses from Meldreth, Melbourn and Royston and a wonderful gardening and bric-a brac stall.

“Also, there were home-baked cakes, a tombola and refreshment stalls – and we raised more than £1,250 for the Residents Comfort Fund and Alzheimer’s UK.”

The residents will undertake their second sponsored walk on Sunday, August 19, again for the Alzheimer’s cause.
