New corporate supporter for Alice House
Alice House Hospice fundraisers are delighted to have been nominated by local business Bridgman IBC as their charity partner.
Bridgman, who manufacture pre-hung doorsets and bespoke doors for UK wide projects, have pledged to take part in a coast to coast bike ride to raise sponsorship for their chosen charity. The challenge will take place from 7-9 June this year and seven members of staff have so far signed up to cycle the 150 miles from Whitehaven to Hartlepool.
“In 2016 as a business we decided we had room for a charity partner, it was a unanimous decision that Alice House be our charity of choice."
Jim Greensmith of Bridgman
Bridgman are covering the riders’ costs so that all sponsorship raised will be donated directly to Alice House to help sustain the care that they provide for local patients and families who are affected by incurable illnesses.
Jim Greensmith of Bridgman, who is organising the project said, “In 2016 as a business we decided we had room for a charity partner, it was a unanimous decision that Alice House be our charity of choice. This decision was mainly down to the fact that our employees are all from the local area and with us employing close to 70 members of staff there is a very strong chance that the majority if not all of our employee’s will be affiliated to Alice House in some way in their lifetime, whether it be via a friend, relative or directly – so anything we can do to help Alice House keep up the superb work they do for the local community the better. Our aim is to raise £5000 for Alice House.
Thanks must go to the Directors of Bridgman IBC, Mick, Tony and Peter who are funding the transport to Whitehaven, food and accommodation for the trip and also thanks (in advance) to the Alice House team for the promotional assistance of the event.”

Greg Hildreth, a fundraiser at Alice House said, “We are so pleased to have been chosen by staff at Bridgman for such a big fundraising challenge; on behalf of everyone here I would like to express our gratitude and wish the team good luck. Events like this make a real difference to Hospice patients who benefit directly from the money raised. I hope that lots of people will get behind the guys from Bridgman and show them the support they deserve.”
