A COFFEE morning and Easter bonnet making competition has raised £339 to help finance trips for care home residents in Bourne.

The Good Friday event at The Cedars Care Home, in Church Walk, raised funds for the resident comfort fund through a tombola, raffle, selling home made cards, cups cakes and hot cross buns.

Residents have been working towards their bonnet designs for three weeks in craft sessions at the care home.

Head housekeeper Maureen Hasbury said: “The hats were all absolutely beautiful and a lot of hard work had gone into their designs.

“They were all very creative.”

The Easter bonnet competition was entered by 12 residents from the home who were assisted by their families and staff.

With all the entries receiving high praise, Paddy Mitchell was judged to be the winner, receiving a basket of flowers as a prize.

Maureen added: “It was a nice family affair.

“We are very fortunate we have got some fantastic families and we get a lot of support from the people of Bourne.”
