Teesside care home throws party for NHS 70th anniversary

NHS Foundation Trust

A NURSING veteran was among those celebrating the 70th anniversary of the NHS at a special event in Stockton-on-Tees.

87-year-old Sheila Bradley was joined by members of Teesside’s health services for the celebration at The Beeches Care Home, on Green Lane.

Sheila was an NHS mental health nurse for over 30 years, having trained at Newcastle University and worked at North Tees Hospital.

Now living at The Beeches, she presented goodie bags as a thank you gift to members of the North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust district nursing team, community matrons, GPs and dentists.

The bags contained wine, chocolates, face masks, notepads and pens as well as a personal thank you card to each of the attendees.

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.
