Probation team hailed

PROBATION staff are celebrating after receiving a bronze award.

Durham Tees Valley Probation Trust picked up the gong at the North East Better at Health awards, organised by NHS Public Health North East.

The awards, which were held at the Thistle Hotel, in Middlesbrough, recognised the trust’s dedication to promoting workplace health.

The trust, which is based in Stockton, ran a scheme to support staff to ensure they enjoyed happier and healthier lifestyles.

People were encouraged to eat a healthy lunch together, take part in lunchtime walks and weight management sessions.

And the hard work all paid off after the trust received the bronze award.
