Mayor of Northallerton opens our new shop

The Mayor of Northallerton has officially opened our new shop in the town of Northallerton that will raise money for us. Councillor Phil Eames cut the ribbon for the new shop on the High Street.

It will raise money to support us, caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across North, East and West Yorkshire.

This includes families like Jim and Jayne Geall, whose daughters Lily-Rose and Tia both have complex health needs, and who have been receiving respite care with us since 2017.

Jim said: ‘Coming to Martin House, we have the luxury of being able to hand the care of our daughters to the staff, knowing they have carefully gone through with us what the girls’ needs are.

‘The doctors at Martin House have linked up to the specialists we have been working with in hospital, and it’s that holistic care, the fact there are people here who understand our needs and requirements. We come here knowing we have that raft of support, but all in one place.’

As well as respite care, we also provide emergency and symptom control stays, end-of-life care and bereavement support. We also provide care in people’s own homes, as part of our community support.

Stephanie Rimmington, our head of retail, said: ‘We’re delighted to be open in Northallerton, and are looking forward to welcoming customers to our shop.

‘We are also looking for volunteers to join us, to help us raise as much money as possible, which will go to help provide specialist care we provide to families like Jim and Jayne’s.’
