Staff from The Surgical Ward at North Tees Hospital celebrated Christmas together and raised funds for Alice House Hospice in memory of Gill Bass.
At an event on 6th December 2019, organised by Tracy Whyte and Lisa Peary, 146 staff from The Surgical Ward at North Tees Hospital celebrated at The Swan Hotel in Billingham.
Tracy said, “My friend Lisa Peary and I organise our Christmas party at work every year and this year we thought it would be a good idea to raise funds for Alice House in memory of our good friend and colleague Gill Bass. It was a lovely tribute to her especially with it being just over a year since she passed away. Thank you to everyone who came along and to the staff and local businesses that donated prizes.“
“We raised an amazing £1,012.35 for Alice House in memory of Gill. We had such a great night with a disco, raffle, football cards and Karen Liddle School of Dance came along for an hour to sing and dance.”
Nicola Winwood, In Memory Fundraiser said “ It was lovely of Tracy and Lisa to think of Alice House whilst organising their work Christmas party. We are so grateful for their support and I can only imagine how much of a lovely person Gill was”.
