Elf Day Kick Starts Care Home’s Christmas Celebrations

SANTA’s elves took a day off preparing for Christmas to enjoy festive celebrations at a Chester Le Street care home.

Elf Day was held at Pelton Grange Care Home to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Staff and residents dressed up as Santa’s helpers for the day and played an elf themed quiz and bingo as part of the fun.

Among the questions: “where do Santa’s elves live?”, “what colour did Santa wear before he changed to red?” and “what is the name of the main character in Elf?”

Resident Dennis Fulton likened the scene to one of Newcastle’s largest department store Christmas window displays.

He said: “We look just like a scene out of Fenwick’s windows. It’s like Christmas has really started.”

Lindsay Sale-Thorn, activities coordinator at Pelton Grange Care Home, on Front Street, Pelton, said: “Elf Day really captured the residents’ imagination and we had lots of fun playing games and dressing up.

“It was also good to know the funds we’re raising are going to such a good cause too.”

The home added £20 to a total of over £10,000 raised by the Hill Care Group for the Alzheimer’s Society over the past year.
