Gibraltar Nursing Home in Monmouth opened its doors this week and welcomed friends, family, and the community to join in festivities at their fundraising Christmas fayre and carol concert.

The event was hosted by Richard Dacey, whose father used to live in Gibraltar until he sadly passed away last year.

The home was delighted to welcome him back.

Team members went all out, dressing up as nativity characters (pictured) and setting up stalls selling homemade crafts, wreaths, and baked goods.

Homel lead, Verity Walmsley, also shared her gratitude for the raffle prizes which had kindly been donated by local businesses. She was thrilled the event could go ahead.

“The team worked incredibly hard over many months preparing and I’m so glad we could make it happen.

‘‘To open the doors and hear the laughter and joy and watch as people enjoyed a mince pie and mulled wine with their loved ones was such a wonderful feeling.”

Altogether, they raised £618, which Verity says will go towards entertainment at Gibraltar in 2023.

“This is something not only the family members love but also their families, and we look forward to welcoming you all back for our next event.”
