Monday 27th February
All day today, for twenty-four whole hours, our full clinical running costs have been donated in loving memory of Elizabeth Cox with a ‘Pay for a Day’ donation.
Below are some words her family have kindly shared with us :
“A proud Scot, Mum had lived in the North-East for 60 years and in Durham for 30. Fiercely protective of her family she was generous and kind, understanding, supportive and selfless, and much loved.
We decided to donate to St Cuthbert’s as thanks for the superb care Mum received in her final days. No restrictions were put on our visiting hours and staff were always very helpful and extremely kind. My sister was even able to spend several nights – and days – with her. Mum was a nurse herself – in Scotland and later in Cameroon – and would have appreciated the care and attention she received, and also the space we were given to be alone with her. We were pleased that Mum’s grandchildren were able to visit throughout her stay.
St Cuthbert’s was an oasis of calm, seemingly separated from the outside world, with the lovely grounds and sheep in the adjacent field helping us to reset our feelings on the walks in and out. Tranquil and pastoral. Ideal at a difficult time.”
We are extremely grateful for this special donation in Elizabeth’s memory.
