Swanstaff Unleash Their Inner Elf for the Alzheimer’s Society
9th January 2018
Swanstaff teams across the UK wore their Christmas jumpers every Friday of December and even turned themselves into Santa’s little helpers to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Donning their best jingle bells they took part in Elf Day on the 8th December which invited people across the nation to unleash their inner elf by dressing up to raise money and awareness for dementia.
Staff raised £135 to support those affected by dementia including dementia sufferers, their families, friends and carers. The money will be going to the Alzheimer’s Society to help running many services the offer including Dementia Cafés, Singing for the Brain® sessions and Side by Side volunteers.
Zoe Murray, Director of Support Services said “At Swanstaff we love getting involved and raising money for worthy causes. When we heard about Elf Day, we knew we had to take part. We combined it with our annual Christmas Jumper Friday and made the Alzheimer’s Society our chosen charity for this. It was fantastic to see so many of our staff donating and dressing up. I am always impressed by their enthusiasm and generosity.”
