Persona people take on the Mannequin Challenge

Employees and customers at Persona, which runs a range of social care support options across Bury, got into the festive spirit this week by holding a Christmas Mannequin Challenge.

The company, which is wholly owned by Bury Council, provides care for young people with additional needs, people with learning disabilities, people with physical disabilities, older people, people living with dementia, people with autism, and carers.

Persona delivers a range of social care support options for over 1,000 adults and older people across the town, through its network of 14 centres. It also delivers care in people’s homes.

The Christmas Mannequin Challenge was part of a series of events and activities being held across December by Persona’s dedicated team as part of their work to help stave off loneliness and keep people connected during the festive season.

Kat Sowden, Managing Director at Persona, said: “We marked our first birthday earlier this year and we decided we wanted to make a special mark this Christmas time with a host of festive activities.

“Keeping our customers connected, involved in events and as active members of society is central to our mission. What better way to bring our customers together and in caring, supportive company than with a medley of festive calendar events.”
