Registrations are coming in for Alice House Hospice’s new fundraising event for 2019, the Memory Stroll, where people will walk in memory of a loved one.
A trio of local businesses have teamed up to pledge their support to Alice House Hospice’s annual Colour Run event, taking place on 22 June at Seaton Carew.
Exwold, Tata and Specsavers are the event’s official sponsors for 2019. Now in its fifth year, the charity fun run of approximately 5km is open to all ages and abilities; participants will be showered with multi-coloured powdered paint along the route.
Yorkshire bank pulled out the stops during Purple Week this year and raised over £1,000 for local charity Alice House Hospice.
The week of purple fundraising saw in-store activities including a cake sale raise in the region of £500 which was subsequently matched by the bank to bring the total to over £1,000.

Staff at Bridgman, who manufacture pre-hung doorsets and bespoke doors for UK-wide projects will be taking part in a coast to coast bike ride to raise sponsorship and have set themselves a target of £5,000.
Purple Week takes place every year in early Spring and the Hospice invites supporters to help raise funds and awareness, using the colour purple as a theme.
This year Alice House Hospice’s annual Purple Week took place between 13-19 April and there was great support from individuals, groups and businesses throughout the town, including T J Hughes in Middleton Grange, who raised a fantastic £863 for the charity.
Sunday 28th April saw a brand new event, The Memory Stroll, take place to raise funds for Alice House Hospice.
The Memory Stroll was a delightful walk along the sea front from the Heugh Gun Battery at the Headland and offered those who took part the chance to walk with friends and family and share their memories of loved ones. As part of the registration for the event everyone also received free admission to the Gun Battery Museum on the day.
