Linda Mitchell leads the Allen House fightback after the floods.

Linda\'s army - thankyou!!

On with the wellies and into work!!


That was administrator Linda Mitchell's response after water ripped through SowerbyBridge and in to our premises at  Allen House.

Linda, pictured in her red wellies,  who wasn't working alerted colleagues the building and surroundings were flooded on Boxing Day.  The next day she went down to Allen House annex with some volunteers she had organised and began the clean-up operation. She was devastated to see the extent of the damage to the annex where we hold several clinics including audiology, podiatry, INR Blood tests, and the District Nursing team's weekly leg club.


The next day she was again back at Allen House and cleared the whole of the car park of the debris and sludge and even asked a road cleaning van working in Station Road to come and help clear our car park so it would be ready for staff returning to work Tues 29th.


A truly amazing effort from Linda and all her volunteers. Thankyou to them all on behalf of our patients and colleagues.
