Agincare Leominster Elves Raise Almost a Thousand Pounds for The Alzheimer’s Society - Amazing!

Date Published: 
Monday, December 19, 2016 - 16:45

The whole event started with Abigail Smith, AUK Leominster Admin-Coordinator, sharing a link from the Alzheimer’s Society Facebook page. Abigail is a Dementia Champion and Clare Dixon, AUK Leominster Deputy Manager, is a Dementia Friend.

They decided it would be a great idea to dress up as elves, as the link suggested, and raise some money for a cause close to their hearts. Through Facebook they invited staff to participate and everyone was happy to get involved. Abigail made the posters and they sent these to all of our Leominster clients telling them elves would be visiting them on 9th December 16, and gave them the chance to have a go. Abigail & Clare baked cakes, sausage rolls and made treats and sandwiches for all the care staff which resulted in a great turn out. It was something that their clients appeared to thoroughly enjoy and the donations they received from them was heart-warmingly overwhelming, to say the least. The clients were keen to have their photographs taken with an elve's hat on, and one client’s husband put on his Santa suit to join in - marvellous. The staff thoroughly enjoyed taking part and are already talking about the next event. There was such a good atmosphere which was felt by everyone on the day. One care worker, Katie Jones, raised £120 alone which was outstanding. At present, the total raised is nearly £900  and they are awaiting the last of the sponsorship money due in soon. They think they’ll hit the £1,000 mark, which is wonderful. They are now well into the process of sending out thank you letters out to all those who made donations. A BIG Agincare thank you to everyone who helped and got involved; you’re all stars!  

 If you would like to know how to become part of the team or how we could help you with care and or support at home, then please call Clare on 01568 611160 or email leominstermgr@agincare.com

Merry Christmas!
