Marathon men Lee Dodgson and John Hewitson have received a fundraising boost ahead of a challenge which will see them run from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

A Hartlepool group have shown their support for their local Hospice and raised a fantastic £502.50 from a ‘treasure and trash’ auction.

Alice House Hospice had, since 2010, been providing an outreach service at the Peterlee Macmillan Cancer Information Centre, for people living in the East Durham community to have easier access to bereavement counselling. Unfortunately, due to the recent closure of the Peterlee Macmillan Centre, our outreach service has now ended.
