Help from the hospice

A REGIONAL charity is the subject of the next Ponteland Senior Gentlemen’s Club meeting on Monday.

St Oswald’s Hospice community fund-raiser Jayne Crow will talk about how the organisation provides specialist care for adults, young people and children.

Its multi-disciplinary team includes doctors, nurses, physios, occupational therapists, social workers, chaplain support and complementary therapists.

The event will be held in the lounge of Ponteland Memorial Hall, Darras Road, from 2.30pm. For more information about the club, telephone Donald Lloyd on 01661 872661 or email
