Hartlepool businesses join forces to support Alice House

Two of Hartlepool’s leading businesses and prominent supporters of Alice House have pledged their support to this year’s Moonlight Memory Walk, one of our most popular and well established events.

Hospice patron J&B Recycling and corporate partner Seymour Civil Engineering have co-sponsored the five mile night time walk which takes place on September 8. The route leaves Hartlepool College of Further Education at 10pm and is a circuit turning round at the halfway point at Seaton Carew Golf Club.

Mark Penny, Commercial Manager at J&B Recycling, said, “J&B is incredibly proud to be able to sponsor the Moonlight Memory Walk this year. The company has been a member of the Hospice’s Guild of Patrons for a number of years now, working to support the work the hospice does in the local community, which also brings benefit to both our employees and customers.”

Seymour Civil Engineering’s Lisa Gooding added, “The work of the Hospice touches the hearts of so many in Hartlepool and its surrounding areas; to be able to give back to the Hospice means a great deal to Seymour. A number of Seymour employees have taken part in the Walk in previous years and the event is always a really good night. We’re keen to help make this year the biggest and best yet.”


Both businesses are celebrating significant milestones, respectively twenty and forty years in business. The two organisations are long term supporters of local hospice care and over the years have helped with funding and resources for a variety of projects.


Greg Hildreth, a fundraiser at the Hospice said “we are delighted that Hospice patients and their families can benefit from the ongoing support of these very generous businesses. Both companies have been invaluable in funding the delivery of our care services. Support such as this offsets running costs of events and helps ensure that the money raised can go straight back into helping people in need. We hope that lots of people will join us for another memorable evening.”

Entrants to the Moonlight Memory Walk will receive pre-event refreshments as well as a fantastic warm-up disco from Walter Barton of Deck One and there will also be a late supper provided on completion of the walk.
