A very big THANK YOU to the Tynedale Gift Fair who have donated £3,000 to us from this year’s very successful Gift Fair at Matfen Hall.

This extremely generous donation will go towards essential equipment at Charlotte Straker House. At our last audit, we were told that 17 of our specialist nursing mattresses needed to be replaced – a huge cost to our team. This donation will pay for all these mattresses – thank to everyone on the Tynedale Gift Fair team for their donation!
