Summer fun for a good cause at Horndean care home 

A care home in Horndean is inviting the local community to a beach-themed fundraising party on Saturday 1st September.

 From 2pm-4pm, local people are invited to drop into Pear Tree Court on Portsmouth Road to join in with an afternoon of fun activities and delicious food.

 Residents and visitors can try their luck at classic fun fair games, including ‘hook a duck’ and a coconut shy, and guests will be treated to a barbecue specially prepared by Pear Tree Court’s chefs. Younger visitors will also have the opportunity to dip their toes in the sand and build sandcastles in the home’s sandpit set up especially for the day. 

 All proceeds will go to Hounds for Heroes, a local charity which aims at providing specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women from the army and emergency services.

 Ray Arnold, home manager at Pear Tree Court, said: “Here at Pear Tree Court, it is important for us to build strong relationships with the local community. Hounds for Heroes is charity that is close to our hearts, and hosting a fundraising event provides us with a wonderful opportunity to invite our Horndean neighbours for a day of family-friendly fun.

 “The preparations are well underway and we look forward to welcoming the community to join us for what promises to be a fantastic day of fun and games.”

 The new three-storey care home which opened earlier in 2018, features 72 en-suite bedrooms and has been designed to enable its residents to live active and fulfilled lives while also promoting independence. The care home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities and includes its own cinema, hairdressing salon, stunning gardens and café.
