Oil & Gas Companies Supporting Alice House Hospice
Alice House Hospice have recently received a donation from oil and gas companies PX Limited and NSMP which has been used to improve patients’ rooms and gardens.
"As for most people, it has been a really challenging year at Alice House and with ongoing uncertainty around our income, this kind of help is more valuable than ever."
The generous gift of £5,000 which was jointly donated by the two organisations has paid for new bedding and curtains for bedrooms and also funded a number of new tables and benches for the Hospice gardens, where patients and their visitors can relax in a peaceful outdoor space.
Alice House was approached by PX during lockdown to discuss ways in which they could help and they were keen to fund resources that would directly help patients.
Deputy Fundraising Manager Greg Hildreth said “It was great to be approached and this support has been of huge benefit to the comfort and wellbeing of patients and their families.
As for most people, it has been a really challenging year at Alice House and with ongoing uncertainty around our income, this kind of help is more valuable than ever.
The patient bedrooms have also recently been redecorated by Hospice staff who volunteered their time, meaning that these areas now look really fresh and new.”
Mike Horgan, Managing Director, Oil & Gas Onshore of PX Limited said “PX are delighted to be able to take this opportunity to support a local charity which makes such a difference to people and families. Our team at TGPP has delivered outstanding continued safety performance and it is an honour to be able to support Alice House in recognition of this.”
Andy Heppel, CEO of NSMP added “In recognition of achieving 6 years LTI (Lost Time Incidents) at Teesside Gas Processing Plant we are delighted to donate to Alice House Hospice, supporting and caring for families in our local community.”
