A family fun day hosted by North Devon District Hospital for the Over and Above Cancer and Wellbeing Centre Appeal had stalls, sideshows and live music throughout the afternoon. There were also behind-the-scenes hospital tours, including a popular tour for teddy bears, who together with their owners got to find out what happens in the Fracture Clinic. The event was opened by 93-year-old Trudi Brown, who was working in North Devon when the NHS was created in 1948. Mrs Brown came to the region from Ireland the year before as a newly qualified radiographer and worked at the North Devon Infirmary up until 1954, when she left to raise a family, but has stayed in the area until this day. Ian Roome, head of fundraising and volunteering, said: We had an absolutely fantastic day celebrating despite the weather being against us, and it was great to see people dancing in the rain in true NHS community spirit! All of our performers were amazing, the food was delicious and we had great feedback about our hospital tours which let people get behind the scenes to see how the hospital ran, see the pathology lab and take their teddy bear to get treated for a broken arm! We are hoping to run similar events in the future. Thank you to everyone who came along, to all our volunteers and to everyone who performed, had a stall or provided food and drink. We couldnt put on amazing events like this without everybodys ongoing support - thank you again.
