Summer fete at Wytham House

Wytham House care home in Farmoor were thrilled to host their annual Summer Fete on Saturday 6th July! The fete is an event which we look forward to greatly, as it is an excellent opportunity for both residents and their families to spend some time together in the lively and vibrant atmosphere. There was lots to do – the afternoon included some fantastic musical entertainment from Cody, as well as games, stalls and a tombola.

There was also plenty to eat and drink, including a delicious barbeque prepared by our head-chef, Jean-Pierre, a delightful cake stall with some mouth-watering treats for anybody with a sweet-tooth, and a Pimms table, to wash it all down in typical British summer tradition.

The afternoon was a brimming success, with so many loved ones coming along to spend the day with their relative. All of our residents had a smile on their face, and vastly enjoyed games such as Hook a Duck, and Guess How Many Sweets in the Jar. The Face Paint table was a hit with the children who visited, too!

As well as our annual tradition and celebration, this year’s summer fete also served as our 3rd Anniversary celebrations. Each year since Wytham House opened its doors in 2016 has been full of joy and warmth.

As a result of purchases from our craft stall and refreshments, and tries at hooking a duck, tombola, face painting and more, we raised a grand total of £388.85, which will all go toward our Residents’ Fund, helping us to provide new and exciting activities, tools and events for our wonderful residents. Thank you to everybody who helped us raise this staggering amount.

Raouda did a fantastic job on Face Paints, and Spider Man even joined in with Cody, providing us with a rather entertaining duet! Our residents thoroughly enjoy Cody’s shows he puts on for us, so it was fantastic to have him perform at our Summer Fete.
