A care home celebrates an 'successful' event after a three year pause due to Covid.

Charlotte Straker House, a care home situated in Corbridge, Northumberland welcomed back guests on the grounds after a three year break, to celebrate its 30th anniversary Summer Fete.

The carehome has a charity called Charlotte Straker Project (CSP) which raises funds for the non-profit organisation which provides residential accommodation for up to 30 people who are in need of nursing or personal care.

The event raised £1,250 for CSP which organisers say will go towards a garden project.

Organisers were grateful with the 'excellent attendance' as many enjoyed the day and enjoyed listening to music provided by the Sunshine Panners Steel Band.

Many other charities and local good causes also had stalls at the event.


Berenice Groves, Chair of the Board of Trustees said: “I am delighted with today’s event. This is the first time in two years that our grounds have been open.

"I would like to thank everyone who attended and supported not just Charlotte Straker but also all the other good causes.

"It has been wonderful to see our residents and their families outside in the sun enjoying such an important occasion.”
