A trip and treats bring festive joy

Clients from St Joseph's, our specialist day centre in Gateshead for people with dementia, enjoyed a trip over the Tyne for afternoon tea at the Alan Shearer Centre recently.

Members of the group were treated like VIPs, with door to door travel to and from the Centre and a delicious feast of festive broth, scones and cakes served in Browne's café.

Christmas music and a wealth of incredible decorations completed the experience and made for a really joyful time.

"Everyone felt very pampered and thoroughly enjoyed the trip out," said St Joseph's Manager, Flavia Myers. "Staff at the Centre were lovely and even surprised everyone with a selection box gift as we left!"
