Last week our services in the North East held a fantastic celebration party to mark Potens’ 30 Year anniversary – with every service across the Tees region coming together to celebrate in style!
Attending the celebration event were individuals and staff from Potens’ services: Middleton Lodge; Darlington Supported Living; Springfield; Avondale; Beaufort and Loftus.
Area Manager, Emmalyne Rumney, said, “All services played a part in the evening – from making food, to our maintenance guys running transport for the further afield services! The party was a huge success thanks to the real effort of the whole team in the Tees – we couldn’t of achieved it without all of theirhelp and support.”
The event was ticketed with all proceeds going towards Potens’ Extreme Challenge duo – raising money for Cancer Research UK, Time to Change, Mencap and Mental Health Matters.
Emmalyne adds: “The event raised a massive £620.00. We were proud to hand over the cheque to Wais following his challenge completion on Friday. To tie in with the anniversary celebrations we also celebrated two birthdays on the day – Natalie Richardson who lives at Middleton Lodge was 28 years old and Eddie West, who lives DSL and has been with us over 20 years, celebrated his 80th birthday!”
Amazing effort and Happy Birthday Natalie and Eddie!
