A summer fete in Ely raised about £300 for the residents of Militia Way.
Wendy Mitchall, who organised Saturday’s event for residents of the sheltered housing scheme, said: “It was nice to see them enjoy themselves rather than just sitting in their chairs in the living room.
“They all enjoyed a cup of tea, a piece of cake and a talk about what they have missed.”
About 40 people took part in a raffle, tombola and games including bottle in the bag, name the teddy and guess the number of sweets. There were also books, bric-a-brac and jigsaws for sale.
Mrs Mitchall said: “The money made will go towards giving the residents a sit down roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings as well as live music from Tom Kennedy and a dance.
