As Alice House Hospice approaches middle age – in 2020 it is 40 years since Alice Bendle founded the charity which has grown into the Hospice we know today – we thought it would be a good time to relaunch our magazine. With a new magazine comes a new name – ‘Hello my name is Alice’ – and we really hope you enjoy reading it.
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.
