AN EASTBURN care home has raised £1,650 for the Alzheimer's Society over the past 12 months.

Croft House has held many fundraising events including taking part in the society's Elf Day when all members of staff including management dressed up as elves.

Deputy manager Kelly Flaherty said: "We wanted to raise money for a worthy cause which is close to everyone’s heart at Croft House.

"The Alzheimer’s Society is our residents' chosen charity which they wanted to support. The staff team work so hard to raise money on behalf of the residents.

"There is is lots of information about the Alzheimer’s Society and what they do."
