Hartlepool Golf Club continues to support Alice House
Alice House Hospice continues to receive warm support through their long standing relationship with Hartlepool Golf Club.
2018-19 Captain Neil Ashby has followed many of the club’s previous captains and nominated Alice House as his chosen charity.
"I would like to congratulate Neil on his captaincy and wish him all the very best for the year ahead."
Greg Hildreth, Hospice Fundraiser
Neil has a number of functions planned throughout the year and is also taking part in the Great North Run to raise much needed funds to provide Hospice care for people and families affected by incurable illnesses.
Neil recently visited the Hospice for a coffee and a tour of the building where he met with staff.
He said “It was great to see first-hand what goes on and my main inspiration in supporting Alice House this year was unfortunately my step sister Susan Dunn nee Ashby sadly passed away in the hospice through cancer at the age of 38. It was always in my mind to support this great cause, also with so many past captains supporting Alice House I wanted to carry on the support and affinity with the golf club.”
Greg Hildreth, a fundraiser at the Hospice has worked closely with Hartlepool Golf Club since 2009 said “We were delighted to welcome Neil to the Hospice and discuss his motivations and plans for the year. Neil and his family have direct experience of Hospice care, having sadly lost Susan at a young age. The members of Hartlepool Golf Club are remarkably generous and have shown great kindness over the years. ”
