Carers Week

This week has been ‘Carers Week’, and never before has the amazing and tireless work our carers do been so prominent, as we continue our national fight against Coronavirus.

Award for Kettering General Hospital

It was fantastic to hear recently that Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have received a prestigious award from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) for its innovative project on the ambulatory management of spontaneous pneumothorax.

A project that aims to remember all those who have very sadly lost their lives in the UK as a result of COVID-19 is being led by St Paul’s Cathedral in London, supported by community and faith leaders from across the country and HRH the Prince of Wales.

Community Notices

• I recently pulled together a collection of ideas and activities to hopefully help keep us busy, learn something new and have fun, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Particularly if you’re looking for something to do over a damp weekend, do take a look!

The 'Future Fund'

The Government has launched the ‘Future Fund’ aimed at supporting UK-based companies who can now apply for a convertible loan of between £125,000 and £5 million, to support continued growth and innovation.

Volunteers’ Week

As part of Volunteers’ Week, I wanted to say a massive ‘thank you’ to all the volunteers, both here in Corby & East Northamptonshire, and across the country, who do so much to help so many.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Our mental health and physical health are just as important as each other. That’s why, particularly at the moment, we need to make sure that we as individuals, and our friends and family, look after our mental health as much as possible, and look out for each other.
