100 years of Charlotte Straker House

The Charlotte Straker Trust does incredible work improving the lives of older people, and on Saturday Charlotte Straker House in Corbridge is celebrating 100 years as a vital part of the Corbridge community with its Centenary Summer Fete. From 2pm on Saturday 9thJune there will be stalls, face painting, tea and cakes, music by the Tyne Valley Band and more. Charlotte Straker House was originally run as a cottage hospital in memory of Charlotte Straker in 1918, and now provides a home for elderly people in Tynedale and West Northumberland. It is a wonderful place and it would be great if you could go along on Saturday and celebrate their centenary!
