Big-hearted residents at an East Renfrewshire care home have raised a fantastic £440 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Residents and staff at Newton House Care Home hosted a scrumptious tea party and invited friends and family to join them in their fundraising drive.

It’s a huge credit to the home in North Greenlaw Way, which has supported Macmillan on an ongoing basis and handed £300 to the cancer charity last year.

Resident Anne Thomson was joined by her niece Dorothy at the tea party and said it meant a lot to spend quality time with family while helping others.

Anne said: “I had a great time with my niece, and it was lovely to be surrounded by such delicious cakes, especially when it is for a good cause.”

Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach at Newton House, Kerri MacNeil, said everyone was ‘overwhelmed’ by the support the home had received.

She added: “Staff and relatives all contributed and brought in homemade goodies for everyone to enjoy.

“It was such a memorable and successful day, and it was so nice to see everyone chatting, laughing and enjoying themselves. There was a lovely atmosphere.”

Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.
