A Stoke Bardolph care home boss has braved the shave to raise cash for an Alzheimer’s charity.

Lorraine Abbiss, who is regional director of Rivendell View care home, shaved off all her hair to raise money and awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

She has so far raised over £700 for the Alzheimer’s Society after having the charity chop.

The Mayor of Gedling, Cllr Meredith Lawrence, supported by the Mayoress, Wendy Lawrence, was invited to complete the first cut while residents and the care team watched on to show their support.

Lorraine said: “I chose this worthy cause as dementia and Alzheimer’s are very close to my heart. Some of our care home residents have dementia and so I know what fantastic work the Alzheimer’s Society does and how much support and advice they offer.

“It was a very strange experience but I’m loving my new look and want to thank everyone who has supported me and cheered me on.”

Rivendell View, situated on Magenta Way in Stoke Bardolph, provides 24-hour residential and dementia care, opened back in June this year.
