Care home staff Step Out For Stroke and raise hundreds

Step Out For Stroke

CARE home staff joined hundreds of participants at Stewart Park in Middlesbrough for the Step Out For Stroke fundraiser.

Two Hill Care Group homes in Stockton-on-Tees sent staff members to take part in the event, raising hundreds of pounds for the charity.

Home manager Helen Wood, administrator Debra Hall and her daughter Poppie, from The Beeches Care Home, Newtown, completed one circuit of the park.

From Mandale House Care Home, Thornaby, activities coordinator Tracy Wilson and care assistant Jacqueline Ball completed a double circuit of the 120-acre park.

Both homes join dozens of other Hill Care Group homes across the North running separate fundraising events for the Stroke Association through the year.

Homeless get helping hand and hot soup from care home

A POP-UP soup kitchen will open in a Teesside care home to serve hot food and drinks to the homeless.

Mandale House Care Home, on Acklam Road, Thornaby, is opening the kitchen following the success of their food bank appeal in December.

They are working with local initiative Hope for the Homeless North East, launched as a Facebook group by Darlington resident Ray Cook.

Ray has donated lots of bottled water and cans of soup for the kitchen, which will open from 11am to 1pm on Wednesday, 7th February 2018.

The home’s hairdresser is also offering free haircuts to anyone who visits.

The home is also launching an appeal for any sleeping bags, hats, coats, gloves as well as blankets, to provide ongoing support to the area’s homeless.
