Staff and residents from a Potters Bar care home walked through Cuffley in adorable onesies to raise money for a charity very close to their hearts.

If you saw a giant bee, a cow and a unicorn walking to Cuffley, you would not be mistaken as Cooperscroft and Cuffley Manor care home residents were out and about in onesies.

On September 6, staff and residents organised a memory walk for the Alzheimer’s Society where a team from the homes, including relatives of the residents, walked to and from Cuffley village in their onesies.

It took two hours and on their way, they met generous people who gave a few pounds towards the cause.

Friends and relatives have been donating by text or to the JustGiving page and so far, the team has raised £200.

The Alzheimer’s Society offers support and advice to those affected by the disease.

Cooperscroft offers 24-hour care for those living with dementia.

Care home manager Brenda Sweetman said: “This cause is very close to all our hearts and it was a fantastic way to celebrate our residents and their families.”
