A successful night in memory of Liam and Angela
A sell out annual event in aid of Alice House saw its most successful year in 2019!
The twelfth Liam Gough Memorial Night, which took place in November last year has just raised an incredible £2,894 for local Hospice care taking the event’s running total to around £27,000.
The event is organised by Liam’s brother John and his partner Ann Bates and takes place in Rovers Quoit Club in Hartlepool. As well as being in tribute to Liam, the evening is also in memory of his and John’s sister, Angela O’Hara.
There were 200 guests in attendance including a number of staff from the charity.
On the night there were raffles, bingo, an auction and tombola, as well as live music from popular 60s band The Valentines, whose bass player Neil Forcer is a Healthcare Assistant at Alice House. The band were really well received, performing hits by The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Small Faces and many more from the decade.
Neil said “It was a great night and we were really proud to be a part of it.”
Greg Hildreth, a Fundraiser at Alice House added “These nights are always hugely enjoyable and incredibly successful. This is because of all of the hard work put in by John, Ann and all of the friends and family who support them.
It’s a pleasure to be involved and to have seen the event grow and become part of our annual fundraising calendar. As ever, all of the money raised is used to help support local patients and their families.
Thanks to everyone who attended or supported in any way, most of all John and Ann whose efforts and dedication make this possible.”
John, Ann and family would like to thank everyone who supported them and have already started to plan this year’s event.
