Raising money to help others

Posted onPosted on 15th Dec

Staff at Edingley Lodge Care Home swapped their uniforms for costumes on National Elf Day to raise funds to help people living with dementia.

Launched by the Alzheimer’s Society, Elf Day was created to sprinkle festive cheer on fundraising towards finding a cure for dementia.

On the day, residents and staff at the home in Edingley enjoyed elf-themed games, including a best-dressed elf competition, Christmas quiz, and elf-bingo, together with festive food.

General manager Jilu Stephen said: “Elf Day at Edingley Lodge is always a lot of fun and we are home to some of the most unusual elves I have ever seen! We know first-hand that many people, including a good number of our residents, are living with some form of Alzheimer’s. That’s why raising money to support dementia charities is dear to our hearts and we’re always so keen to get involved. We’re proud that the money we’ve raised will go towards such a good cause. 

“For anyone that has any questions about caring for those with Alzheimer’s, do please give us a call and we’ll do all we can to help?”
