Care homes ‘elf themselves’ to raise money for Alzheimers

Marriott House and Lodge Care Home in Chichester raise funds to help people living with dementia

Staff swapped their uniforms for costumes on National Elf Day (Friday December 2nd) all for a good cause.

Launched by the Alzheimer’s Society and delivered direct from the North Pole, Elf Day was created to sprinkle some festive cheer on fundraising towards finding a 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.

Nikki Culleton, General Manager at Marriott House and Lodge and head elf, said: “Elf Day at Marriott House and Lodge is always a lot of fun. 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.”

Barbara, 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!”
