Care for the elderly in Northumberland.

Thank you to the Corbridge Family Fun Day for funding our Community Respite Care Bed.

By 3rd December, 2019 News Comments Off

Thanks to donations raised at this year’s Corbridge Family Fun Day and Charity Cricket Match, the running of the Community Respite Care Bed in Charlotte Straker House has been entirely funded between 2nd to the 11th December 2019.

Each week the respite care bed costs £892 and is funded entirely through grants and donations from the local community. So far this year the Respite Care Bed has had 38 admissions for short term care, all from the local community.

We invited John Maude, Chairman of the Corbridge Cricket Club, to visit the Community Respite Care Bed and he was given a certificate of appreciation for his team’s hard work in helping to organise the event.

Thank you to all those who attended and/or gave a donation at the Family Fun Day and Cricket Match. We are delighted to show how much of a difference the money raised benefits the village of Corbridge and the local community!
