THE Grove Court House Christmas Bazaar in Woodbridge went with a swing raising £2,200 for essential extras.

Grove Court is one of 12 award winning homes run by the Elizabeth Finn Trust offering both residential and nursing care. The proceeds of the bazaar will be used by the house committee to provide the residents with some extra comforts.

Present at the event was the Mayor of Woodbridge, Les Binns, and everyone involved said they send their warm thanks to him for taking part in the successful day.

Also given a warm vote of thanks were the local businesses that supported the event by taking stalls and donating prizes for the tombola and raffle.

Events such as this are important aspect in the daily life of the home and the Trust is always grateful for the support they receive.

The Elizabeth Finn Trust is a charitable organisation that aims to relieve need and distress among people from a professional or similar background who are of British or Irish nationality and regardless of religious denomination, political opinion, age or place of residence.

The Trust was founded in 1897 by Elizabeth Finn as the Distressed Gentlefolk's Aid Association. It was renamed in January 2000 in response to the overwhelming evidence that the term "gentlefolk" was no longer clearly understood and to position the organisation for the first half of the twenty-first century.
