It was respectable in the 80s: Brighton Argos staff go back in time to raise charity cash
3:30pm Wednesday 31st July 2013 in News
Shoppers were hit by disco fever as they entered a Brighton store.
Argos staff at the Carden Avenue store dressed head to toe in 1980s colours to raise money to help people living with dementia stay in their own homes for longer.
Argos colleagues invited customers to join them in fancy dress – with the best outfit winning £200 worth of store vouchers.
The Colour Me 80s theme was chosen to raise awareness of how using colour in the home can help people with dementia in their everyday lives.
Richard Hawley, Alzheimer’s Society supporter and actor, said: “I’m so pleased my father was able to be cared for at home by my mother but it was only possible with the help of dedicated services.”
Carden Avenue’s Argos fundraising will go towards helping thousands of people with dementia stay in their own home and be part of the community for longer.
