A vintage performance by staff and residents at Kirkley Manor Nursing Home in Lowestoft raised £440 for charity.
Tess Hardy, organiser of Lowestoft Riding for the Disabled, collected the cheque from Dani Gaston, manager of the Kingsley Healthcare home in Kirkley Park Road after money was raised at the home’s successful vintage fair.
The event, which attracted more than 200 people, was supported by Lowestoft Classic Car Club whose members brought along an impressive array of gleaming vehicles.
Lambretta and Vespa scooters were displayed along with a fire engine, while staff and residents donned outfits from the 1940s, 50s and 60s – some of which were supplied by Pakefield’s Seagull Theatre - for a vintage fashion parade. Kirkley’s activities co-ordinator Carole Cook said: “Local business were very generous with prizes for our auction. We managed to raise nearly £900 which was split between Lowestoft Riding for the Disabled and our residents’ fund to put on extra activities.”
