A Valentine’s Day Cheese and Wine evening at Care South’s Gillingham care home St Martins raised £201 for the residents’ amenities fund. Friends and relatives of residents and care staff joined the party which enjoyed cheese and biscuits and wine or juice, as well as chocolate fountain dipping, candy floss making, a raffle and a competition to guess how many love hearts sweets were in a jar. “The money raised will help to pay for residents’ outings during the summer,” says Kristie Chubb, Deputy Home Manager at St Martins. “It was a very successful social evening for all, and definitely one to repeat!”
