Fundraisers appreciated

On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society, I would like to thank the staff at Wansbeck General Hospital for their fundraising efforts.

The kind-hearted team who work on wards six and seven raised £268.35 for the society by holding a tea party and selling raffle tickets during last month’s Dementia Awareness Week.

Whilst the money will be used to help make life better for people with dementia and their carers, their efforts have also helped raise awareness of the disease so we have taken another important step in the right direction.
