"In the past year, we have turned a building into a wonderful caring home for our residents to live in and for our staff to work in.
"Today not only enables us to celebrate their hard work, but it's also an opportunity to thank the residents, their relatives and friends who have and continue to support us to make Hazel Lodge such a loving home.”
