High Tunstall’s Hawking House supports Alice House Hospice
Alice House Hospice staff were recently invited to High Tunstall College of Science to meet with pupils and staff and celebrate having been nominated as Hawking House’s nominated charity.
Hawking House students opted to name the local charity as their chosen cause. The House will support and fundraise for Alice House over the academic year ahead.
Teacher Jonathan Turner, Head of Hawking House said “Hawking House is delighted to adopt Alice House Hospice as their new house charity. We look forward to working closely with them in the future to raise funds and awareness for such an outstanding local charity which is so close to the hearts of a number of families within our immediate community.
“High Tunstall College of Science is committed to our charity work through the house system and this partnership continues to develop the positive ethos we promote within all of our students. We have already discussed a number of events we can support within the coming months and we look forward to a healthy partnership within the future.”
The school was visited by Fundraiser Janice Forbes and Specialist Dementia Nurse Linzi Stafford who took part in the Hawking House assembly and talked to the pupils about the work of the Hospice.
Janice said “It’s brilliant to have been nominated by Hawking House and it was lovely to have been made so welcome by the staff and pupils. We are looking forward to working with the students of Hawking House, it’s always a pleasure to meet such motivated and kind-hearted young people; they are a real credit to their community.”
