Cheviot Court join the Boxing Day dip!

December 26th 2011

While most of us were tucking into turkey sandwiches or sleeping off yesterday’s excesses, staff at Cheviot Court joined over 100 other brave lads and lasses for the Boxing Day Dip!

Running into the chilly waters at South Shields seafront in December is not for the faint-hearted. But it has become a tradition which attracts dozens of charity champs every year.

Boxing day morning at the Littlehaven beach in South Shields saw over one hundred brave lads and lasses run into the freezing sea for charity including 5 members of the team at Cheviot Court!

Well done team!


Residents of Cheviot Court care home in South Shields love being busy. Some grow herbs and tomatoes in the garden while others bake cakes. And there’s a big emphasis on trying something new, from ten pin bowling to tai chi and trips to the theatre. Everyone looks forward to the regular karaoke nights when family and friends come along for a sing.
