Staff from the Co-operative Funeralcare inNorfolk Placeand Linthorpe Road Funeral Homes inMiddlesbroughhave funded a memorial garden for the Gales Nursing Home.
A plaque and granite tablet were donated, and they also funded groundwork by Castle Construction. David Knowles, manager of both funeral homes, said: “The staff and the manager told us what they wanted to do with part of the garden and we asked if we could get involved. It’s now a lovely peaceful place for people to remember their loved ones.”
