Residents and staff from Jazz Court retirement service in Eastfield raised over £160 for Epilepsy Society’s Purple Day.

The day was planned by Wellbeing and Inclusion Assistant Yasmin Cox after her son was diagnosed with the condition.

To mark the occasion, staff wore purple T-shirts and baked purple cakes, and the retirement service was decorated with purple bunting.

Rather than residents getting together in the communal lounge, staff took trolleys loaded with purple sweet treats and hot drinks around the building.

Yasmin said: “I am overwhelmed by the support shown by the residents and the rest of the Jazz Court team, it really means a lot that they wanted to support a charity that is so close to my heart.”
