The residents of Hickathrift House hosted the annual Marshland St James Women’s Institute Garden Party.

A number of residents attended the party where they heard a talk on the work of a donkey sanctuary by Liz Wright and then were able to meet donkeys Daisy and Jenny, who enjoyed being centre of attention.

Sue Scarlett, General Manager of Hickathrift House said the event was very successful for all concerned and it was hoped that the Women’s Institute would consider holding further meetings at the home, as they are keen to encourage community involvement which is beneficial to the residents and the wider community.
