Edwardstow Court in Stow-on-the-Wold have been raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Edwardstow have raised money through a successful cupcake sale which was held outside Tesco in Stow where they raised £270 and through a resident who has bravely shaved her head.

Liz Tame who lives at Edwardstow Court wanted to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society as she shares her home with many people who are living with dementia and she wanted to help fund research into Alzheimer’s disease. Liz had her head shaved at Edwardstow’s busy coffee morning on Friday and has raised an amazing amount of nearly £1900.

Liz has received the majority of her funds through her JustGiving page (www.justgiving.com/fundraising/liz-tame ) where people have been warmed by Liz’s story and have been delighted to donate.

The whole home are so proud of what Liz has done and it is a fantastic amount of money that has been raised. Well done to Liz and to the baking team at Edwardstow!
