 Purple wigs and a walk help care home raise charity funds

Purple wigs and a walk help care home raise charity funds

By 11th June, 2018 Press Releases No Comments

PURPLE wigs and a sponsored walk have helped a Sheffield care home in South Yorkshire raise hundreds of pounds for the Stroke Association.

The Laurels Care Home, on Manchester Road, has collected over £300 so far for the charity.

Staff at the home spent a day in purple wigs and clothing and entertainer Hilary Dennis joined in with a purple dress while performing for residents.

Home manager Louise Spooner, home manager Rachael Booth and deputy manager  Kim Baker also took part in the Western Park Step Out For Stroke event.

They joined thousands across the UK raising funds for the charity with a sponsored walk in their local parks.

The money will go towards supporting stroke survivors and their families, with over 1.2 million people living with the after effects in the UK.

The home is one of dozens of Hill Care Group homes across the north raising funds for the Stroke Association throughout the year.

Louise said: “We’d like to thank everyone who donated and sponsored us during our recent fundraising activities for the Stroke Association.

“We’re so proud of our total so far and we’ll be aiming to add to that throughout the year.

“Everyone had a brilliant time celebrating Purple Day and then we had fantastic weather for the sponsored walk in Western Park, which is just down the road from the home.”
