The Trustees of the Mark Benevolent Fund have agreed a tremendous grant of £4,378 to Abbeyfield House for the purchase of 22 android tablets.
Abbeyfield House is a not for profit organisation with the building situated on the outskirts of Alnwick. It is open to all and has a mixture of social care and privately funded residents.
The tablets will enable residents who are self isolating to communicate with their relatives and the outside world. Tablets are an ideal tool for the residents to use, presently there are only three tablets and obviously biosecurity is a major issue when they are passed from one user to the next. The tablets will also allow users to write, read, paint and complete puzzles during their isolation.
A huge "thank you" to the MBF trustees from the home on behalf of the residents and from the brethren of the Mark in Northumberland.
