New benches for Bedale centre
1:44pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
THE Coop supermarket came to the rescue when a centre for elderly people in Bedale appealed for new benches.
With a summer of glorious weather staff at Dales Care were keen to buy new benches so elderly people could sit outside in the sun.
Michelle Sands from Dales Care said: “The exsisting benches outside of Dales Care were worn, old and in need of some repair and we really wanted to have somewhere for our visitors to sit and enjoy the lovely English summer.
"Our old benches didnt look inviting or comfortable so we decided to see if we could raise the money needed for new ones”
“We recently set up a facebook page and it was on here that Jonathan Barker, manager from the Co-op in Bedale saw our appeal, got in touch and offered to buy the benches.
"We were delighted to recieve the new benches and were so pleased that the co-op has chosen to support us.”
