Peterlee Lions plan their 5th annual walk for the Hospice

The Husband of a much missed Alice House Hospice volunteer Kath Miller has paid tribute to her memory by raising over £8,000 since her sad passing in 2016.

Tommy Miller a member of the Peterlee Lions, who have organised a sponsored for the last 4 years, chose to name 2017’s walk “The Kath Miller Memorial Walk”.

Around 100 people took part on the three mile walk which started from the Hearts of Oak in Peterlee and took a lovely route around the picturesque Castle Eden Dene.

Included in last year’s £8,000 total was £900 which Tommy’s son, Tommy Miller junior and his friend Mark Roberts raised in sponsorship from competing in the Great North Run.

Tommy said, “The Peterlee Lions are always proud to support Alice House Hospice in the fantastic work that they do for patients and their families in Hartlepool and East Durham. I would like to thank Natural England, Tracey and Peter Webster of the Hearts of Oak in Peterlee, Liam of Dineen of Box Clever Horden and everyone who supported the event and for making it such a lovely tribute to Kath.

Janice Forbes, community fundraiser at the Hospice said,“There will be another walk in July this year, the fifth year that Tommy and the Peterlee Lions have organised, in aid of Alice House Hospice. Last year’s walk was very poignant with family members of Kath taking part alongside staff at the Hospice. It is always a pleasure to work with Tommy and it is fantastic that over £8,000 was raised in memory of such a special lady.”


Tommy has already started to organise this year’s walk which will take place in July with the actual date still to be confirmed.

Anyone who is interested in taking part can contact Tommy on 07970 789681 or Janice on 01429 855536.
