Five of the many who make Carrington Care’s Carrington Fair such a special event

Carrington Care CEO Raad Richards, Village Co-ordinator Carla Upfill, Executive Assistant Emma Johnson, Hotel Services Co-ordinator Cathy McDonald, Volunteer Co-ordinator Alison Vella, Property Services Manager Rob Cutajar and Property Services’ Chris Dolman have busy day jobs at the provider of community care, aged care and retirement living services in Sydney’s southwest.

The Not For Profit’s only fund-raiser is the annual Carrington Fair, which has been held for over forty years.

This year’s Fair exceeded all expectations, emerging as a resounding success. The picturesque grounds and first-class facilities at Carrington were showcased to a record-breaking crowd, reaffirming the community’s enthusiasm and support for the fair.

Numerous residents from the Carrington village actively participated in the fair’s organisation, forming a crucial part of the committee. Special recognition goes to Jill De-ath, Graham Shelley-Jones, Jane Whelan, Barbara Handley, Carol Saunders, Robyn Thompson, Ken Long, and Virginia Crompton for their dedicated contributions.

The fair received substantial support from local businesses affiliated with Carrington Care, with over $20,000 in donations. Funds raised from the fair are utilised for purchasing items from the Carrington Wish List, which has a positive impact in our Carrington Community.

Participating stall holders played a pivotal role in enhancing the overall experience of the fair. Carrington’s residents had their own stalls including cakes, jams, craft, woodwork, books, trash and treasure, and much more. The external stall holders had a diverse array of products which contributed to the vibrancy of the fair.

The fair attracted thousands of people, including residents from the Retirement village, aged care facilities, and their families and friends. The success of this fair not only celebrates a day of joy, but also contributes meaningfully to the ongoing well-being of the Carrington Care community.
