Lloyds Bank Volunteer Day at Chipchase House

A group of staff from Lloyds Commerical Bank in Newcastle City Centre came along to Chipchase House to volunteer their time to transform an unused area of the grounds into the perfect garden space for growing plants.

The day was spent cleaning the space, refreshing the walls with paint after sanding old paintwork, and building a mini greenhouse. The volunteers even went to the effort of buying some seeds and new plants with their own funds.

A huge thank you to Graham Lowes, Elaine Gill, Rosalind Hetherington, Lisa Hay, Stuart Harper and Tom Hibbard for your efforts and kindess.

Staff and Residents at Chipchase are overjoyed with the newly transformed space, and plan on using it as a new activities zone.

Red Nose Day Fun 2022

Red Nose Day is always a fantastic day to support other charitable causes here at the Foundation, and this year was not disappointing!

Percy Hedley School held some brilliant fun, games and events, including getting to soak teachers and support assistants! What could be better than that?

While residents at Chipchase enjoyed cake decorating and dressing up!

Rainbow Day – LGBTQ+ History Month

As part of LGBTQ+ History Month, parts of the Foundation took part in Rainbow Day as a way to celebrate and learn.

Northern Counties School took part in rainbow related crafts throughout the day. Students created their own rainbow flags and rainbow tie-dye t-shirts to wear for their fantastic pride march in the afternoon. At the pride march there was music, parachute games and lots of dancing!

Chipchase House got stuck in painting pride flags as well as having an educational presentation in the lounge. Later residents and staff enjoyed a karaoke session honouring some of the great LGBTQ stars!
