Grand support for Alice House Hospice
After predicting a substantial shortfall in fundraising revenue due to the Covid-19 crisis Alice House Hospice been awarded support by Persimmon Homes Durham and its Community Champions fund.
The Hospice was awarded the money by the regional team and the donation will go towards maintaining services as it suffers the effects of the Covid pandemic.
The Persimmon Homes Community Champions initiative seeks to support grassroots groups and charities in areas where the company is building.
Alice House fundraiser Anita White explained: “We rely on our fundraising events and charity shops to help generate the funds we need to deliver our services. However, many of our fundraising activities have been severely compromised by the crisis, which has led to considerable funding challenges.”
“We’re predicting a substantial fundraising shortfall in this financial year as a result of Covid. We’re so grateful for the generous support Persimmon Homes has given Alice House which is helping us to care for local people.”
Christine Cooper, sales director for Persimmon Homes Durham, said: “Alice House does so much for the people of our region and we wanted to help such a vital service with a donation.
“The staff and the fundraisers work incredibly hard to support people with or affected by incurable illness and it is our privilege to contribute to their cause.”
