Staff and residents at a Southgate care home have raised £550 for Alzheimer’s Society thanks to a successful cake sale.

At Hugh Myddelton House in Old Farm Avenue, resident ambassador Rosa organised a cake sale to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Society during Dementia Action Week.

Globally, there are nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide. Residents and staff at Hugh Myddelton House were “all very supportive” and were there to cheer on the participants as they began the fundraising challenge.

Jade Shea, general manager at Hugh Myddelton House Care Home, said: “Taking part in fundraising for Alzheimer’s awareness has been a huge amount of fun and everyone at the home has been behind us all the way. It’s for such an important cause and one very close to our hearts here at Hugh Myddelton House.

“We’re very glad to be able to do our bit to raise further awareness and money for the charity.”
