Residents at Patchet Lodge care home in Holbeach took part in a balloon launch in aid of Dementia Awareness Week.
The balloon launch is part of a nationwide event, which allows members of the public and residents from care homes to win prizes, while raising awareness of dementia.
Every resident at the home released a balloon, and each balloon had a ticket attached to it.
Whoever finds a ticket furthest away from where it was released has the chance to win a prize, as will the resident who released the balloon on the day.
Helen Woodger from Patchet Lodge, which is part of the Order of St Johns Care Trust, said: “All of the residents loved the launch. 
“Everyone was very excited and we were chuffed as we had great weather for the event too.”
