Colleagues from across the trust came together
to celebrate 75 amazing years of the NHS. Here are
few photographs of the milestone.
Family fun day
Despite the gloomy weather, colleagues dusted off their trainers and headed to Dorman’s Club in Middlesbrough for a Family Fun Day and it was a huge success!
Not only were there lots of exciting activities for everyone to get involved in but there was also an array of food stalls for people to enjoy.
As well as being a great day out for all the family, the event raised £1,627 for Our Hospitals Charity.
A special shoutout to Ward 9 for being crowned as the overall winner of the sports day.
Friarage marked the occasion with cuppas and cake
Our Friarage colleagues put on the biggest tea party we think we’ve seen on Northallerton high street.
There was everything from cuppas and cakes to independent stalls, historic exhibitions and live entertainment – it’s fair to say that everyone got into the party spirit.
If that wasn’t enough, there was a special visit by Emmerdale actor Chris Chittell and BBC Radio York broadcast live from the event throughout the day.
Thanks to everyone who attended; £1,869 was raised.
Northallerton’s NHS Retirement Fellowship celebrates duo anniversaries
The Northallerton branch celebrated duo anniversaries as they got together for the NHS’ 75th anniversary and 45 years since the Fellowship was established.
Carter gives back to those who cared for him
Carter Smith, one of our former Friarage patients, raised £625 on the NHS’s birthday by completing a gruelling 12-mile challenge – as a gesture of goodwill to the staff who treated him.
On 21 April, Carter was rushed to the Friarage due to a medical emergency, where he says he received “excellent care”.
His fundraising challenge saw him retracing the route his ambulance took from RAF
Leeming to the Friarage.
To make the challenge even harder, he carried a 44lb backpack throughout his run.
“It was a tough three hours with a heavy bergen but having raised £625 for the NHS charity – nothing was stopping my legs from moving,” he said.
“I’m so grateful for the support I received from family, friends and Judith (Our Hospitals Charity), who all had a huge impact on making this event bigger and greater – and simply
wouldn’t be possible without their support.”
