Last weeks “Manchester weekly news” serving homes across Tameside and beyond…….
Great miss as we enter Reuben’s memorial month. Every year we go through the motions and take great care as we reach every milestone, each a painful reminder that he is no longer with us.
Using my flipping technique I would like to share with you from now, until we reach them, that we are offering 4 open days for you to come and visit our Retreat. Every Sunday for the whole month of October, we will be opening our retreat and lodge for you to see. The days are family friendly and we will be open from 11am until 3pm.
Open on the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of October. You will be able to view our fantastic new facility “The lodge at Reuben’s” and also see the extensive list of works, and our plans for the big main building. We hope that the big building will be ready by 2020 and I expect it will take at least another £2million. Our plan is to produce a state of the art day care facility including hydrotherapy and sensory suites. And a plan to produce a Victorian tea room and 4 large apartments for our families. No mean feat, but very worthwhile and so very much needed. It will be a flagship facility for families to use from all across the UK.
On Saturday I attended one of our M&S bag packs at Glossop. It was lovely to meet so many wonderful supporters of our cause and I would like to thank you all for making us feel so welcome.
A real buzz about the place, it is wonderful to hear all your stories of “Woods hospital”
