New member of Guild of Patrons receive plaque

Alice House Hospice’s newest Patrons were proud to be presented with a brand new plaque to display in their workplace in acknowledgement of their generous support.

Utility Alliance joined the local charity’s prestigious Guild of Patrons earlier this year after starting to work with the Hospice in 2017. Their first involvement was as one of the lead sponsors of the #LEJOGAH project which saw Lee Dodgson run the length of the UK and raise an incredible £43,000 for patient care.

The Guild of Patrons is a panel of leading businesses from around the region who each pledge to donate £5,000 per year in support of the services that Alice House provide to people and families affected by incurable illnesses.

Greg Hildreth, a Corporate Fundraiser for the Hospice said “The warmth and support that the team at Utility Alliance have shown towards our patients is inspiring and their generosity helps to sustain the care services that we take so much pride in delivering to our community. The Guild of Patrons is a vital part of our funding and makes a real difference to the lives of local families; I would like to formally welcome Utility Alliance and thank them for joining us.”

Ian Willis, PR Manager at Utility Alliance said “Our staff are delighted to be supporting such an important organisation in Hartlepool, things have got off to a great start and we are keen to be involved in events throughout the year to help raise both funds and awareness for this wonderful cause.”

Utility Alliance are based on Hartlepool Marina but also have premises in Newcastle and Sheffield as a broker of energy providers for businesses all over the UK.
