Purple Wigs, Beards And Tutus Worn For Stroke Association

PURPLE wigs, beards and tutus were donned at a Chester-le-Street care home to raise funds for the Stroke Association.

The charity’s Make May Purple campaign saw Pelton Grange Care Home holding a coffee morning and karaoke as part of the activities.

The residents and staff also dressed in purple clothing and fancy dress and sold home baked cakes – raising £58.

Resident Lillian Maxwell, who sang Girls Just Wanna Have Fun during the event, said: “I love it when we do karaoke as I love singing.”

Chris Hogan-Hind, acting home manager at Pelton Grange Care Home, on Front Street, Pelton, said: “Everyone had a great time dressing in purple to raise funds for the Stroke Association.

“Karaoke is also always a winner with the residents, as they love to sing, cheer and clap their friends.

“We raised a good amount with the cake sale and plan to take part in more fundraising activities for the charity throughout the year.”
