RESIDENTS from retirement homes came together to man the stalls at a summer fayre and raise £300 for charity.

The fayre was held at Hanover Grange, Church Walk, Bridlington, on Wednesday August 8 and raised money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Estate manager at Hanover Grange, Pam Tyrell organised the event, for which residents had chosen to raise money for the air ambulance, and people from all four Hanover properties in Bridlington came to help.

Sheila Shakeshaft, estate manager at Avenue Court, said: “It was a very good day and even people who don’t live on the scheme came.

“They all got together and we all had a good laugh and a good chat.”

A cheque was presented to David Hebden, an air ambulance volunteer, on Wednesday August 15, at which Pam and Sheila were present along with residents.

Hanover is a retirement housing scheme, which runs almost 19,000 retirement and extra care properties on over 600 states in England and Wales.
