Local business providing a little “Extra Help” for Alice House

A Hartlepool bar and delicatessen are helping Alice House launch a new appeal to raise money for patient care.

Hops & Cheese, based in Tower Street are backing the “Extra Help Appeal”, where companies invite customers or clients to donate an additional £1 on their bill as a donation to Alice House.  

This is a brand new fundraising initiative designed so all types of businesses can help generate funding for the unique range of specialist services that Alice House provides to the patients and their families within the communities of Hartlepool and East Durham.

Business owners Hannah Thompson and Calum Willmott were happy to sign up and Hannah said “This is a great opportunity for us to support a very valuable local resource and I am sure that plenty of our customers will be happy to give a little extra on their bill. Hopefully we can raise lots of money and see other businesses get involved too.”

Hannah and Calum are keen to show their support and are also planning to take part in the Great North Run 2020 in aid of Alice House.

Greg Hildreth, Corporate Fundraiser at the charity said “It was great to meet with Hannah and Calum and we are really pleased to have their support – if any other companies would like to join them in the Extra Help Scheme, then please get in touch.”

If your business or workplace would like to sign up to take part in the Extra Help Scheme, you can contact Greg on 01429 855529 /
