Crouch End Care Home holds Garden Party for Grenfell Tower

A charity-run Crouch End care home is holding a community garden party in aid of people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The event is on Friday 28th July from 11am onwards at the Abbeyfield Society’s Morris House, 23 Coolhurst Road, Crouch End.

Joining them to make a special guest appearance is London’s Fire Brigade who are bringing along a fire engine, and the organisers have also invited along a few surprise celebrity guests.

Throughout the day there’ll be a number of stalls and activities to enjoy including a live band, DJ, face-painting and a selection of world foods provided by the community. There’s also a raffle with some very special prizes up for grabs, including signed football memorabilia.

The entire community is invited to join residents, volunteers and staff for an afternoon of fun activities in the beautiful outside space at Morriss House.

All proceeds raised will go to the victims and those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire and donations will be doubled by The Big Give.

House Manager, and event organiser, Jade Lewis told us, “We’re all really looking forward to the garden party and bringing together the community for such a worthwhile cause. When the residents heard about the fire they were adamant about doing something to help those involved and we put our heads together to think of this event! We hope to see a huge turnout on Friday.”

The Abbeyfield Society was established in 1956 and is a charity providing residential care and support to older people. The organisation has 601 homes and houses in the UK and overseas, in which staff and volunteers support 8,000 older people living in a family-like atmosphere
