Inspirational Youngster’s Fundraising Efforts

An inspirational 9 year old, Lewin Tubuna will be cycling 150 miles coast to coast in just 3 days to raise funds for Alice House Hospice.

Lewin has set himself a target of £2,500 and is already up to £1,790; this figure includes support from local businesses Ryan Fruit & Veg, Appleby Carpets, Andrew Thompson Decorating, Hydrochem Group, No love Lost Collective, Jazz Personnel, Ama Business Services Ltd, Guardian Windows, Ian Bond Brickwork, Robson Builders, Adam Marshall PT and Pool Resprays.

To boost funds Lewin’s family, along with Hospice supporters Lee and Claire Dodgson, are organising a Western themed Hospice Hoedown fundraising night at Hartlepool Workingman’s Club on Friday 6 July from 7-11.30pm. There will be live music from the ever popular Pek & Wanley, plus pie and pea supper, bingo, raffle and more.

In keeping with the theme, guests are encouraged to wear cowboy hats and checked shirts; tickets are just £6 (18+ only) and available from the Hospice on 01429 855536.


Lewin and his dad Suli will be starting their journey on 22 August.  They are hoping to complete the challenge on 24 August which is Lewin’s 10th birthday.

Janice Forbes of Alice House said “Lewin is a truly remarkable young man and he has done an amazing job fundraising so far. He has great family and friends behind him, as well as supporters from the local business community. The Hoedown will be a fantastic night and a great boost to Lewin’s fundraising.”
