Stroke Association

HUNDREDS of pounds have been raised for the Stroke Association by a charitable Peterlee care home.

Staff, relatives and friends of Bannatyne Lodge Care Home collected over £300 in sponsorship for a five mile hike around the town.

The home now aims to continue raising funds for the Stroke Association with a cake and coffee morning.

Lynn Chapman, home manager at Bannatyne Lodge Care Home, on Manor Way, said:

Michelle Park, an activities coordinator at Waverley Lodge Care Home, in Lemington, was cheered on by colleagues at the Resolution Run Newcastle 2018.

The event took place in Leazes Park, in the heart of the city, when thousands of runners plodded the pathways for the charity.

Other staff members from Waverley Lodge manned the water tables, sponsored by the Hill Care Group, which operates the care home.
