Sponsored Walk for Ann Charlton Lodge
Gill Harrison and her friend Denise Hardy walked 100km along St Cuthberts Way finishing at Holy Island, raising spsonsorship in memory of Gill’s son, Mark Robinson.
It was a lovely tribute to Mark and a much appreciated gesture. They raised a staggering £765! Thankyou very much, the lodge is very grateful.
St Cuthbert's Way bridges the border between Scotland and England,covering 100km from Melrose where St. Cuthbert started his religious life in 650AD, to Holy Island off the Northumberland Coast.
Fantastic Summer Fair
The Lodge began the celebrations of its 30th Anniversary with a summer fair. Scores, if not hundreds of visitors turned out to support the Ann Charlton Lodge's fund-raising day. Families and friends set out tombolas, craft stalls and outdoor games including a bouncy castle. The real 'live' fire engine was a great attraction for the children who all enjoyed a few bee-barps on the sirens and horn!
Together with the proceeds of a summer raffle, the day raised well over £2000 which will be used for the benefit of residents of the Lodge.
A million thanks to everyone who helped and supported on the day!
Local Law Firm upgrades hoists
Redcar based Cygnet Law has donated £1800 to cover the cost of replacing the slings used to safely lift residents from their beds to their wheelchairs.
'We are really grateful to Cygnet Law for helping us to maintain these essential pieces of equipment,' said Sarah Jemson, manager of the 25 bed specialist residential care centre in Redcar.
'Friends' Group re-launched
The Friends of Ann Charlton Lodge support group has been relaunched. Already a new Facebook page has been created to keep residents, friends and supporters in touch with one another.
The Friends Group plays a vital part in providing many of the 'extras' such as occasional outings and parties and special events that all add to the quality of life at Ann Charlton Lodge.

Rotary Club gives 'Pat-Slide'
The Rotary Club of Redcar recently donated a patient transfer slide, popularly known as a 'pat-slide' to the Ann Charlton Lodge. The slide enables nurses and carers to move a resident from bed to bed without unnecessary upheaval or the risk of injury to the staff.
'We have supported the Ann Charlton Lodge from the day it opened and are happy to be able to help again,' said Ian Wilson, president of the Rotary Club.
Defibrillator donated to Lodge
'Be-Like-Tom' is a local charity that has provided 35 Automatic Defibrillators in memory of 35-year old Tom Sievert who died of a heart attack.
The Sievert family have donated a defibrillator to the Ann Charlton Lodge. Primarily for the benefit of residents, it is also available 24/7 to the general public in the immediate vicinity of the Lodge.
'We are most grateful for their generous support and the gift of this life-saving equipment,' said Peter Wilson who chairs the Trustees of the Lodge.
