CHRISTMAS jumper fans are being invited to wear their favourite festive top to support an anti-loneliness campaign.

The invitation comes from care home Sunrise of Mobberley, which is having a festive jumper day at the home on Friday, December 14.

People are invited to join in the fun on the day and donate £2 to wear a Christmas jumper and support the anti-loneliness campaign and Save the Children.

Entertainment, champagne and refreshments will be provided, as well as a complimentary lunch, which will be served from 12.30pm.

At 3pm Dean Huston will entertain with his Christmas saxophone rendition.

The festive jumper day is part of the home’s busy calendar of Yuletide events, which are aimed at residents, friends, family and the community.

Dawn Williams, director of community relations at Sunrise of Mobberley, said: “With loneliness a serious reality for older people, Sunrise of Mobberley understands the importance of companionship, and is working hard to make a difference.

“We look forward to welcoming new friends to ensure the festive season is filled with warmth and happiness for all.”

On December 7 and the first Friday of every month thereafter there will be a complimentary lunch for anyone in the local area looking for a warm meal and friendly companionship.

The home’s Christmas fair takes place on Saturday, December 8, from 2pm to 4pm, offering lots of stalls and refreshments as well as a visit from Santa.

On December 13 and the second Thursday of every month thereafter will be the Memory Care Café, which is run in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society and is open to anyone looking for advice and resources on memory loss.
