World Champion Boxer Stuart Hall Becomes First Good Friends Champion

12:22 PM, Mar 04 2014

Darlington born professional boxer, Stuart Hall, became our first Good Friends champion today (25th February 2014) where he attended Age UK Darlington to meet with a number of Good Friends as well as Day Care residents at Bradbury House.

At the age of nine, when Stuart was attending Skerne Park Junior School in Darlington, he wrote an essay which won him the coveted title of Junior Mayor of Darlington. Included in his essay was a promise that if he were to become Mayor, he would focus on helping older people to be happy by knocking on doors to check they are doing well.

Stuart is the ideal candidate for a Good Friends Champion,  understandably busy with his boxing career, but still able to find the time to promote the Good Friends cause and remain active within the community. People such as Church leaders, Councillors, GP's and other professionals are encouraged to become Good Friends Champions, helping to recruit new Good Friends or informing older people they come into contact with about the opportunity that is there for them to receive help.

Stuart attended as part of 40's/50's event day which was organised by Day Care manager Sue White, and also included live music and a tea dance.
