Coffee Thursday

,

Are you feeling fed up, stressed, worried or overwhelmed?

If you feel it would help to talk to someone in a non-judgemental, safe space, then Coffee Thursday might be just what you need. Coffee Thursday is a free, monthly pop-in coffee morning, where you can take time out for a cuppa and a biscuit and have a chat, when you’re having a tough time. Health Trainer Donna will be there to meet you at this pop in coffee morning, where you can stay for as long or as little time as you like.

It can really help to say things out loud and get them off your chest, and Donna will be there to listen and give support and information on lots of issues that can get us down – health, money, relationships – or point you in the direction of someone who can.

Not sure it’s for you? Call in and see what you think. Everyone is welcome at this free monthly pop-in coffee morning. Starts Thursday 7 November, 10.30am to 12.30pm, in the Resource Room, next to Cafe @ Burn Lane.

Blackpool Jaunt for Tynedale Stroke Club

,

Members of Tynedale Stroke Club enjoyed a short break in Blackpool last week, thanks in part to funding from the Co-op local community fund.

Cash generated when customers swipe their membership cards in stores and from the 5p carrier bag levy is distributed to nominated local charities every six months.

The funding paid for the transport to and from Blackpool, provided by Adapt (NE) and Jewitts coaches for the 24-strong group. The funds also covered the cost of hiring a carer to join them on the trip, meaning that some of the passenger’s partners could also take a break.

The group stayed at the New Mayfair Hotel in Blackpool, part of the CQC registered ‘Safehands’ holiday company which caters for people with a variety of disabilities, with hoists and other specialist equipment provided in the rooms.

As well as being entertained by displays from Blackpool National Armed Forces Day which included the Irish Guards Choir and an air show, some of the group visited the Tower Ballroom and had a dance to the famous Wurlitzer organ.

Organiser Eileen Vale of Tynedale Stroke Club says, “We all had a fantastic weekend with brilliant weather. The hotel provided a great service and nightly entertainment and our drivers were so friendly and accommodating; we couldn’t have asked for more and will definitely be going again!”
