    On 25th November staff and residents will be going to the Christmas celebrations at Beamish.

    We will be doing a charity walk on 26th November for Children in Need. Residents and staff will be dressing up as ‘Pudsey Bear’ and hopefully getting lots of sponsorship for a very worthy cause. Afterwards we will be enjoying a well deserved cup of tea whilst having a go on the raffle and tombola stall and we will be having a fundraising cake.
