RESIDENTS and staff at Roseland Parc retirement village got into the Christmas spirit and raised an impressive £700 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance at their annual Christmas fayre.
 
The event, held at the age exclusive village in Tregony, near Truro, featured a number of last year’s stalls and attractions brought back by popular demand. These included cake and craft stands, a tombola and the famous Wine or Water lucky dip – which raised over £100 alone.
 
Roseland Parc resident Dennis Brown even donned the red suit and white beard to treat staff and guests to a picture with Father Christmas.
The Cornwall Air Ambulance (CAA) was chosen as Roseland Parc’s charity this year because of the incredible service it provides to the local community. It was the first service of its kind in the UK and has attended around 1,000 incidents per year for the past 25 years.
Roseland Parc’s house manager Janice Grant said: “It’s wonderful to see residents come together for a good cause, particularly at Christmas time. We’re delighted with the amount of money raised and look forward to visiting the CAA headquarters to present them with the cheque in the New Year.”
