Forget Me Not Hospice Appeal
Alice House Hospice are launching their annual summer remembrance appeal ‘Forget Me Not,’ to raise much needed funds for patients and families affected by incurable illnesses.
The annual campaign invites people to make a donation in memory of a loved one to the local charity. Everyone making a dedication will receive a Forget Me Not keepsake, which will be displayed and available for collection on Sunday 18th July 10am-12pm. People are welcome to visit the Hospice gardens and view the dedications.
In addition to this, Hospice volunteers will also be running a Forget Me Not stall in Tesco Extra, Belle Vue Way from 5th- 16th July 10am-4pm. Supporters will have the opportunity to write a message on a Forget Me Not tag and display it on a tree in return for a donation and also sign up to the campaign.
The event is kindly sponsored once again by Victoria House Funeral Service who have worked closely with Alice House since the company was founded in 2013.
The three Directors of Victoria House, Apolena, Carl and Andrew said “We are so proud to be able to support the Forget Me Not campaign, once again raising funds to support the specialised care that has been given to the families of Hartlepool and surrounding areas over the years.”
Nicola Winwood, In Memory Fundraiser at Alice House said “We are delighted to have the ongoing support of Victoria House and to be able to proceed with this appeal after a very difficult time. The team at Victoria House have always been supporters of Alice House and their kindness is making a real difference to the lives of local patients.
I hope that people will take some comfort in making a dedication to their loved ones and will provide an opportunity to reflect on some happy memories”.
