Hello, my name is Alice… |  Issue 4  |  Autumn/Winter 2020

2020 will certainly be a year we won’t forget. The possibility of not remaining open became a potential risk when lockdown affected a
large portion of our fundraising income. Our shops had to close, door to door lottery collections stopped and almost every fundraising event indefinitely postponed.

But the generosity of hospice supporters, local businesses and the community as a whole has been heart-warming to say the least. Thank you to every person who helped – for every penny donated, for every Facebook
post shared, for every gift of goods and supplies offered. We would not have survived the past 6 months and remained open for those who needed hospice care during that time if it wasn’t for your generosity.

We still need your help as we take stock of the full economic impact this pandemic will have on the Hospice, so if you can afford £1 a week please consider joining the Hospice Lottery. Your help means those who need hospice care can continue to rely on it.

Thank you so much for your continued support.


Hello, my name is Alice… |  Issue 3  |  Spring/Summer 2020

As we embark on a new decade we are so proud of all that has been achieved over the past 40 years since local mum of four, Alice Bendle, founded the hospice in 1980.

The amazing communities of Hartlepool and east Durham have helped to make sure that anyone who needs hospice care can get it. Your kindness means that our doors have stayed open for all that have needed care and support when facing life-limiting illnesses or the death of a loved one.

In these often-unsettling financial times we hope that the insight into how hospice care is funded and how your donations are spent (pg.4-5) is helpful, and reassuring.
We also have the privilege of sharing the experiences of two wonderful women who have used hospice care as well as getting to know In Memory Fundraiser, Nicola Winwood in the Staff Spotlight.


Hello, my name is Alice… |  Issue 2  |  Autumn/Winter 2019

In this second edition we turn the spotlight on some of the ways our amazing care staff go above and beyond every day. We hear first-hand from those who use Alice House services and we personally invite you to join us for this year’s two Light up a Life remembrance services in Hartlepool and Peterlee.


Hello, my name is Alice… |  Issue 1  |  Spring/Summer 2019

In this first edition, you can read about ‘Captain Tomato’, find out what a day in Day Hospice is really like plus a staff spotlight on wonderful Hospice Receptionist, Grace McCann.  

On behalf of all the families your support provides hospice care to, thank you.
