THE Pearce Home held its annual bazaar at their home at Butt St in Suva last week.

Pearce Home board chairperson Linley Barrack said the bazaar was to help in the functioning and operation of the home's daily activities.

"We do this once a year to sort of raise funds to help the home because we are sort of a charitable institution and so we like to try and get the community involved," Mrs Barrack said.

The home is for those people who have reached the retirement age and their families need them to be taken care of.

"A lot of the families overseas, they're worried about there parents or whoever, so they like to put them here because they know that they are looked after and it's sort of a homely and safe environment."

According to Mrs Barrack, the residents pay at least $50 a day for services such as the washing of their clothes, buying of food and other necessary requirements but it does not cover all the costs. It is very reasonable but like I said it doesn't cover the cost, which is why we have the annual bazaar."

She added the items being sold at the bazaar were all gifts and nothing had been bought under their expense.

The home has the potential of catering for ten retirees but has a total of six residents.
