Age UK Torbay has been presented with a cheque for over £200, following a successful fundraising event hosted by Lincombe Manor Retirement Village.

The Spring Fair, held on a sunny day in April, featured a range of stalls, a raffle and the chance to enjoy a magnificent location, with proceeds being donated to Age UK Torbay.

Nikki Dodd, the Age UK Torbay Ambassador said: “We are absolutely delighted that Lincombe Manor raised over £200. It was a lovely day and we particularly enjoyed the Bric-a-brac stall, which had some great finds, kindly donated by residents. The plant stall was also very popular, with thoughts turning to gardening in the warm sunshine.” Nikki continued: “Age UK Torbay is committed to helping older people enjoy later life in Torbay. The funds raised will go towards helping us tackle loneliness and isolation amongst older people in our community, via our befriending and careline services. We also hold various social events throughout the year which enable older people to get together, have fun, enjoy company and make friends. A cup of tea, a chat and laughter with a friendly face and a listening ear can make such a difference to older people.”

Jacquie Myers-Prescott, Estate Manager at Lincombe Manor said: "We were delighted to work with Age UK Torbay, it was a pleasure to see so many people here supporting this worthwhile cause. Our Sales Manager, Angela Ricards, and I worked really hard to pull the event together and our residents and club members were very keen to support the initiative. They collected together a significant number of items for the event, raising well over £200 for Age UK Torbay. We must thank everyone for their support."
