Care for the elderly in Northumberland.

We have a variety of fundraising events each year which raise essential funds for our Community Respite Care Bed appeal, and other vital pieces of equipment for our care home.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us with the organisation and management of these events. Please visit the Volunteering page for more information.


Our annual Christmas Extravaganza will be at the Corbridge Parish Hall on Saturday 2nd December 2017. A professionally catered three course meal and dancing to the band Chequers. Everybody always has an excellent time, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. Don’t forget you can order your tickets from Mike Pottage on 01434 632901.
