Huge thanks to
Dave Beattie the founder and
driving force behind Rounton Coffee Roasters delivered a very
special brew to our hospitals in County Durham & Darlington NHS
Trust - deliciously roasted 'Nightingale Coffee'.
Dave said, 'We might only be able to help by keeping you
caffeinated but we hope we can also bring a bit of light into your
day. In the precious moments you are able to find time for
yourself, we want your staff to have a quality cup of coffee,
sourced and roasted with love.'
What a lovely gesture and so greatly appreciated. Thank you so much
to Dave and the team.

We are totally delighted to receive our new rainbow keyworkers
bench, donated by Fabrications North East.
Business owners Steve Bassett, Tom Wise and Dene Nelson (not
pictured) said, 'Our team wanted to do something special in
recognition of everything the NHS and Keyworkers have done for our
community, so what better way than to use our skills and create a
place to rest those weary feet.'
Pat Chambers Charity Development Manager said, 'This is such a
wonderful gesture and so very colourful it's hard not to smile when
you just look at the bench, even if you're not actually sitting on
it. We want to extend our thanks to everyone who contributed (L-R)
Tom Wise, Steve Bassett, Ste Wise, Adam Hutchinson and Glen McGough
- brilliant teamwork!'

Sending out a huge thank you to all of the players who donated
their 'end of season pool' to us at CDDFT Charity.
The player contributions throughout the season saw the club's
players raise £3,000 for their bonus pool, made up of monthly
subscriptions and players fines.
Fines were given out to players for various things including
being late, missing club attire, dirty boots and mobile phone use
in the dressing room.
Usually this money is spent on an end of season celebration,
however, this year the team thought it would be better served
helping our local hospitals - so a huge thank you to all the team
for their most generous donation of £3000.00 which will help make
such a difference to both patients and staff.
Dave Bussey, the club's assistant secretary, said: "Football and
nights out are the last thing on the players' minds at the moment,
we are all grateful to what the NHS are doing in these
Thank you everyone
