Cranleigh based Knowle Park care home opened its doors to the community once more recently as they held their popular annual garden party.
Over 140 people, including those from the local community, attended the event held in the picturesque gardens of the 19th Century Manor House to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.
Activities included a raffle, flower arrangements created by residents and even a coincidental fly by from the Red Arrows. Talented violinist Kai Choi provided the musical backdrop for the memorable day.
Knowle Park Manager, Netra Longhurst, told us:
'Everyone has had a wonderful time today! We are so grateful that the event was so well supported by the local community – it is important to our residents that they remain an active part of the wider community.
I would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work in organising the day, along with everyone who attended and all of the local businesses that donated some fantastic raffle prizes. In total we raised over £320 for a fantastic cause, Parkinson’s UK.’
Located in the Surrey town of Cranleigh, Knowle Park is an early 19th century Manor House that has been restored to provide residential and nursing care for up to 43 elderly ladies and gentlemen. The home is run by the family-owned Caring Homes Group, which was founded in 1994 by mother and son team, Helena and Paul Jeffery.
