Hexham MP Guy Opperman Visits Acomb Court Care Home in Hexham

Published: 31st July 2019

On Monday, 29th July Guy Opperman, MP for Hexham, accompanied Visiting Wag Teams Audrey Miller and Cassie, and Judy Mitchell and Tattie to Acomb Court Care Home in Hexham.

We're very proud of Audrey, Cassie, Judy and Tattie who introduced Guy to all their friends at Acomb Court. Guy saw the joy which our lovely Friendship Dogs bring to residents there, he said "it is so moving to see the interaction between the residents and the dogs, and it is fantastic that Acomb Court hosts these wonderful visits which are having such a positive impact for older people in addressing feelings of loneliness and isolation. They have my full support."

We'd like to say thank you very much to Guy for taking the time to visit, it's so special for our volunteers to have their exceptional community service recognised in this way 🐶❤🐶
