Four legged friend visits Hallgarth family
Following on from the success of another year at Crufts, dog lovers at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham watched the competition in awe with their adopted dog Mapachi and his lovely owner Meg.
Angela Muir, Home Manager, explained: “The residents enjoy welcoming a variety of pets into the home but Mapachi and Meg are definitely the firm favourites.
“Mapachi is always gentle and so pleased to see everyone, especially resident Margaret who gives him some special attention.
“Mapachi may never be a Crufts winner, but he is the top dog here at Hallgarth.”

Two team members from Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow went the whole hog as they took part in Tougher Mudder, with the aim of raising money for the residents’ fund.

Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “I’m really proud of Kellie and Debbie, they did a fantastic job, and were still smiling at the end of the course. Their hard work paid off and the pair managed to raise £250 which will go towards providing special experiences for the residents. Well done again ladies. You both deserve a nice hot soak in the bath.”

Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend came together for a joint celebration as they marked two very special people’s birthdays.
The first birthday was Her Majesty the Queen, although a more important one had to be care assistant Kate turning 21.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “We decorated the home and created a Royal Throne for Kate to sit on. We also surprised her by presenting her with a throne and cape so she could be Howdon’s very own Queen for the day. We all celebrated with a lovely royal themed cream tea.”
