Oak Lodge brings some Christmas cheer

Our Oak Lodge independent hospital colleagues collected donations for their local food bank, with the help of service users, just before Christmas. They raised £50 to buy food and toiletries.

The people we support did the shopping and helped to deliver it to the foodbank. Oak Lodge’s Rosemary Longshaw, who coordinated the effort, said; “They have all really enjoyed doing something productive and giving back to the local community. Thank you so much to everyone for your generous donations.

“We managed to get absolutely loads of dried food, tinned goods, tea, coffee and sanitary products which will make a massive difference to those who are finding it difficult at this time of year.”

Oak Lodge in Bolton was awarded an Outstanding for its overall care following a recent CQC inspection.
