A CARE home in Bridgwater has raised cash for a residents’ comfort fund at their Christmas Fayre.

Milton House in West Street raised more than £800 at the event, which will contribute towards entertainment and trips out for residents.

A variety of visitors, residents’ family members and friends took part in a raffle and browsed stalls, buying homemade crafts and cakes to raise the cash.

Manager Julie Bohot said: “We are thrilled to have raised so much money for the comfort fund.

“Thank you to all the staff, residents, family members, friends and visitors that made today a success.”

Somerset Care is one of the largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in Southern England.
