Quiz boosts Lymington dementia action

Caring brains thanked for raising funds for Lymington Dementia Action Group

Colten Care Quiz in aid of Lymington Dementia Action GroupTeam members from five New Forest care homes went into battle for a ‘fiercely competitive but fun’ quiz in aid of the Lymington Dementia Action Group.

Around 50 players, mainly staff from the family-owned Colten Care group, took part in the event at the Lymington Town Sailing Club, raising more than £200. Homes represented were Belmore Lodge, Court Lodge and Linden House in Lymington, Woodpeckers in Brockenhurst and Kingfishers in New Milton.

Joining in were colleagues from the homes’ support team at Colten House in Ringwood plus friends from St Mark’s Church in Pennington.

A mix of trivia, general knowledge and Colten-specific questions eventually saw the team from Linden House declared the winner.

Janie Pearman, Home Manager at both Belmore Lodge and Woodpeckers, said: “The evening was a great opportunity for colleagues from our local family of homes to get together. The competition was fierce but fun.

“While we hoped to raise money for a charity, we didn’t make the choice. It was our residents who wanted us to donate it to the Lymington Dementia Action Group, and that’s just what we’ve done.”

Action Group Chairman Ian Erridge said: “A huge thanks to all who took part in the quiz and the residents who were so keen for the funds to come to us.

“Funding is vital to help us reach out to the wider community, build awareness, provide local support and maintain Lymington as a dementia friendly community.”
