On Thursday 25th July, the Arcare Malvern East community held a market in the Hilton lounge.
The market day was a fun way to invite the community into the Arcare Malvern East community, as well as providing family and friends the opportunity to come together.
The Arcare Malvern East were hosting the market day, with the aim to raise money for the Motor Neurone Foundation.
Stall holders came in to sell their beautiful handmade jewellery, books, handmade cards, bric-a-brac, clothing and footwear.
The clients enjoyed the bustle of the market, and looking through the wide array of products on offer.
The handmade jewellery stall proved to be quite popular amongst the crowd. Lifestyle coordinator, Tina modelled her multi-coloured jewelled glasses chain, which the designer had made personally for her. Many of the clients gushed over the beautiful glasses chain, with many going on to make a purchase.
Client, Margaret said “They’re all so beautiful! I don’t know how I’m going to decide which one to buy… I guess I’ll buy them all!”
Clients and visitors enjoyed the coffee, tea and cakes on offer at the cafe, with not a single table being left empty.
It was a fantastic day for all, with the Arcare Malvern East community raising over $350 for the Motor Neurone Disease Foundation.
