Your stories


Tracey, mum of healthcare assistant, Becky

Becky, 29, was a healthcare assistant at North Tyneside Hospital when she died of COVID-19. She left behind four beautiful daughters, one of which she never met as Becky’s baby was delivered whilst she was on life support. The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation provided a respite break for Becky’s whole family to spend quality time together.

“The beautiful cottage, the decor was so quaint and the size of the bath was fabulous, loads of bubbles and chillaxing. The trip encouraged team building for the girls. No WiFi, just old-fashioned board games. It was a lovely relaxing break away from the normal hustle and bustle life. Thank you very much. This break away meant so much to both me and my beautiful granddaughters. The first Xmas without their mammy made that little bit special with the generosity of the HWF.”
