The season of good will is approaching and if you’re looking to do your bit for a dementia charity, why not take part in Elf Day on Friday, December 6?
Spread some festive cheer by dressing up in your elf gear and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society by hosting an elf day at work or in the community.
Host an elf day at work
Encourage your colleagues to don their best elf ears and fancy dress for the day in return for donations. In the Alzheimer’s Society’s fundraising kit you’ll find lots of ideas for games to play and ideas to get everyone involved. You could even host a bake off of festive treats too.
Host an elf day in the community
Why not ask people to sponsor you to dress up as an elf out and about in your local area? You’ll certainly be a talking point in the local town centre in your elf costume. Why not host a community event in a village hall with games, music and nibbles? This is a great way to get other people involved. You could invite elderly folk to help get them out of the house and socialising with others. The fundraising kit even contains bunting print outs and colouring-in sheets so you can get youngsters involved too.
Money raised will go towards the Alzheimer’s Society’s research and support of people affected by dementia. Two pounds could pay for a DNA duplicator, used to understand its genetics. Fifty pounds could allow the charity to be there for five people, for five hours of support.
One hundred and fifty pounds could pay for two people with the condition to attend Singing for the Brain sessions for a year.
We love to do our bit for charity. You can read about some of our staff’s charity fundraising here and we’ll certainly be doing our bit to get into the festive spirit this year!
