Our 2021 Alzheimer’s Research UK Fundraising

16-12-2021 News, The Team

Following our charity partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK we wanted to update you on all of the fundraising events our office staff have been taking part in to raise money for this cause. This charity is important to us for many reasons, one of which being that it ties in with our current development Cobnut Park, which is exclusively for over 55’s who require an element of care.

We raised almost £250 in the final half of 2021, in addition to our initial £2,000 company donation, and we have been planning more events for our office staff to get involved in to raise even more money and awareness for 2022. Details of how you can make your own donations can be found at the bottom of the article.

Christmas at Clarendon Homes

Clarendon team dressed up in festive clothes

Our latest event was our Christmas Jumper/Fancy Dress Day.

Everyone in the office was dressed in a festive outfit, even the Grinch turned up!

Clarendon Bake Off

Our Clarendon Homes Bake Off involved two members of staff going head to head baking their favourite sweet or savoury treat. Each slice would cost £1 and after each person would give the bakers a score out of ten. The baker with the highest score at the end would win the competition and become the star baker at Clarendon Homes.

Below you can see all of the results for each week including the winner of the competition.
