STAFF at a Johnstone care home refused to let the rain dampen their spirits as their summer fete attracted people of all ages.

A host of fun activities were on offer at Cochrane Care Home, in Quarrelton Road, including games and face painting.

There were also plenty of stalls to browse through and the tearoom team made sure no-one went hungry or thirsty.

People also lined up to try their luck in the raffle and tombola, with local businesses generously donating prizes.

Organisers Lainey Begley and Marian McKay from Cochrane Care Home, were happy with the turnout, considering the damp weather.

Lainey said: “One of the highlights for me was father-and-son music duo Bobby and Robert Holt, who were performing live.

“Albert, Bobby's dad, is one of the residents at the home so was happy to see his son take centre stage.

“Our face-painter Jenna was great with the kids, who were very pleased with all their different designs.

“This was my first year hosting the event as I only started working in the care home in July.

“However, the home has had a fete every year since it opened about 13 or 14 years ago.”

The £830 raised through the fete will be used to treat care home residents to various day trips and activities, as well as paying for entertainers to perform at the home.

Lainey added: "Big thanks go to our lovely friends and family of the care home and all of the businesses in the town who donated raffle prizes."
