Balquhidder House care home in Alexandria held its annual summer fete recently - and celebrated its 4th birthday in the process.

Family, friends and members of the community turned out in their numbers on July 6 to join residents for the festivities and raise funds for activities, entertainment and outings.

There was a real party atmosphere on the day with the home’s cooks baking a special birthday cake to mark the occasion as well as a delicious selection of home-baking.

While, a bottle stall, raffle, face painting, tombola, beat the goalie competition and tin can alley ensured a fun day for all ages.

And as a testament to the day’s success, no less than £882 was raised for the residents.

Fiona Currie, who works at Balquhidder told the Reporter: “We would like to thank everyone who attended the summer fete and birthday celebration.”
