Launched by the Alzheimer’s Society in and delivered direct from the North Pole, Elf Day was created to sprinkle some festive cheer on fundraising towards the cure for dementia. From stripy socks to head-to-toe elf outfits, anything goes – there’s snow better way to raise money to help beat dementia!
On the day, staff managed to do all their chores donning their elfish apparel to raise vital funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Alex, a resident of the home said: “It is always a very festive day and the staff always make us laugh in their costumes. What a wonderful way to raise money for charity!”
Natalie Maxwell General Manager at Claremont Parkway and head elf, said: “Elf Day at Claremont is always a lot of fun and we are home to some of the most unusual elves I have ever seen! We know many people living with some form of Alzheimer’s, and 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 pop in anytime and we’ll do all we can to help.”
