Sue Gilbertson was delighted to receive the keys from Richard Blackshaw on Friday for a new car on loan to the hospice clinical team for the coming months. On presenting the car Richard said:
“We are delighted to offer our support to HospiceCare once again. We realise that Sue Gilbertson and her team do vital work in our area helping families in times of need. Hopefully the Suzuki Jimny 4x4 which we’ve provided for their use this winter will assist in carrying out home visits all over north Northumberland whatever the driving conditions. We greatly value our partnership with HospiceCare as it provides us with an opportunity to give something back to the local community.”
All of us at HospiceCare would like to say a huge thank you to Lee Patterson who produced a calendar of beautiful photographs he had taken of Berwick and the surrounding area. Lee has raised an amazing £4179 from the calendar sales in memory of his sister in law Gillian Rae, who was supported by HospiceCare.
Well done to our biggest ever Great North Run team for completing the World’s Greatest Half Marathon on a very hot day. We are all very proud of you. Some of our runners were taking part for the first time. It was great to see so many of you at our Charity Tent.
7 teachers from the Alnwick area started their new term at school with a huge challenge, taking part in the Great North Run.
They had been spending their summer holidays training to prepare themselves for the run on Sunday September 11th to raise money for HospiceCare Northumberland based in Alnwick and Berwick.
Peter Lindley, Kerrie Green and Zoe Turner who teach at Hugh Joicey First School in Ford ran in memory of their wonderful Head Teacher Sally Wood who sadly passed away at her Alnwick home after being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme. HospiceCare North Northumberland supported Sally and her family in the last 4 months of her life.
When local colleagues who teach at Swansfield Park School, Michelle Makepeace, Craig Warburton, Susan Young and Emma Langman heard about their effort they decided to put on their running shoes on and sign up for the Great North Run and help to support the Hospice.
HospiceCare would like to say a huge thank you Ian Brown - Gentlemen's Captain at Bamburgh Castle Golf Club - for choosing HospiceCare as his charity of the year and raising £2000!!! Thank you very much
