Care home staff step out to raise Alzheimer’s cash

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

STAFF at a care home have handed over a cheque for more than £2,000 to the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety.

A team of fundrais­ers from Prest­bury House Care Home in Mac­cles­field walked 10 miles from the home to Hazel Grove to raise money for the char­ity.

Or­gan­ised by team leader Deb­bie Machin, they wore blue wigs and Alzheimer’s T-shirts to show their sup­port for the cause.

Michelle Wal­ton, leisure and well­ness co­or­di­na­tor at the home, said: “This is the sec­ond fundrais­ing char­ity walk that Deb­bie has or­gan­ised and I am over­whelmed by the sup­port shown by the staff and rel­a­tives who have taken part in the event.

“It was a great team build­ing ex­er­cise, bring­ing the staff to­gether while hav­ing fun at the same time. I would like to say well done to Deb­bie Machin and all the staff and rel­a­tives who have given us their sup­port and par­tic­i­pated”.

The Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety is close to the hearts of many at Prest­bury House Care Home where de­men­tia care is pro­vided to many res­i­dents. All who took part in the walk and res­i­dents en­joyed an af­ter­noon of fun, fine food and danced away with singer Sam Jones.
