Garden party knees up

Have your say

Staff, service users and carers were not put off by wind and rain which threatened to spoil a Doncaster garden party months in the planning.

Undeterred by typical British summer weather, they simply moved the party, at the Forest Gate Hospital on the Tickhill Road Hospital site in Balby, indoors. They treated service users and carers who use Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) Older People’s Mental Health Service to a musical knees-up, courtesy of local musicians The Gastric Band, dancing and food.

RDaSH Health Promotion Lead Kim Gostolo said: “The party was arranged as a “Thank you” to carers for the part they play in helping to make their loved ones’ lives better - although it was open house to everyone and the hall was packed.”
