Care for the elderly in Northumberland.
The Corbridge Parish Council has generously sponsored the Community Respite Care Bed from the 16th to the 23rd December 2019.
We invited Will Clouston (Chair of Corbridge Parish Council) and Liz Buckley (Vice-Chair) to Charlotte Straker House.
Claudia Ionita (Deputy Manager) and Angela Jones (Chair of Fundraising) presented a Certificate of Thanks, and we took the opportunity to show the Councillors around Charlotte Straker House and to enjoy a cup of tea and a home made scone!
The Community Respite Care Bed costs £892 each week and is funded entirely through grants and donations from the local community. This year we have had 38 individual admissions from families in the local area, and have had 100% good feedback.
Will Clouston commented, “It is wonderful to see how much of a difference our donation has made to this local charity, and it was lovely to meet those who benefit from the respite care bed.”
