A total of ten members of staff at Northlea Court in the Brockwell Centre, Cramlington, dressed up for the day in return for a small donation.

They also baked some cakes and biscuits for a bake sale. There was also a jewellery and gift stall for staff, residents and families to buy Christmas presents or treat themselves, with the stallholder making a donation to the fund.

A luxurious hamper filled with wine, candles and products was raffled.

A care home spokesperson said: “Staff, residents and family members alike had a great day filled with fun and laughter whilst raising money for such a fantastic cause.”

The day raised £100 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
