A selection of residents from South Sheilds care home were invited to spend the day at Marsden Road Health and Wellbeing Centre on the 22nd January. Not only were residents treated to a day at the 3 million pound centre they were also introduced to Princess Anne who had also been invited to take part in the days activities.

Princess Anne has become a popular and admirable figure within the care industry for her commitment to charity work. During Princess Anne’s visit to the wellbeing centre she heard about the residents of South Sheilds regular visits to the centre every Tuesday morning, was given a tour of the building and unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion. As a token of thanks the former matron Nancy Robinson presented Princess Anne with a bouquet of flowers on behalf of the residents.
