Special thanks for caring for our Mam

We, the sons and daughters of Kathleen Ellis, who sadly died on February 19 at North Tyneside General Hospital, would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff on Ward 5 who helped to look after for our beloved Mam.

Without exception, they treated her with care, respect and dignity, and they were also very kind to us and helped us through a very sad and difficult time.

We would also like to thank friends and relatives for all donations made and a cheque for £300 has been sent to the NSPCC in Newcastle.

Thanks to everyone.
