12th Druridge Bay Charity10K Run

12th Annual Druridge Bay Charity 10K raises over £8K for local Hospice.

Veronica Powell a new attendee of the Monday drop in at Berwick.

Billy Atkinson was 84 years old when he died on 22nd May 2017 and he was my Dad!

Many moons ago, I trained as a nurse at the RVI and have on a voluntary basis nursed in a residential hospice in the south of England. I have been involved with end-of-life care many times, but nothing fully prepares you for the imminent death of someone you love.
