Croft staff raise funds and dementia awareness

Croft staff raise funds and dementia awareness

Staff and families of residents at the Croft have been using their time very charitably again to raise funds for the home’s residents whilst at the same time raising awareness about dementia. They have recently raised £500 during the run up to the season of good will by organising a Christmas Craft Fair and running stalls in local markets and church halls. The funds will be used to benefit the residents and should provide plenty of welcome treats in the coming months. All these fundraising events have also had the added benefit of raising the profile of the Croft locally.

Staff have also used these events to raise public awareness about dementia. They are working with the Purple Angel organisation which is a worldwide dementia awareness scheme founded by 56 year old Norman McNamara who has early age onset dementia.   Jackie Stuckey and Stacie Culloty, two of the Croft’s care staff, both deserve a special mention as they have been awarded Purple Angel ambassador status for all their hard work and commitment to raising dementia awareness in the local community. Well done to them and to all of the staff and the families of residents who have given their time and energy to these good causes.
