Persimmon Homes


26 January 2022

One of Teesside’s leading hospices has been awarded a £1,000 funding boost from the Community Champions scheme.

Anita White from Alice House Hospice explains: “We are an independent charity which provides specialist palliative and end of life care for adult patients from Hartlepool and east Durham. Our work is built around the ethos that every person has the right to dignity, respect, support and care and our services are designed to enhance life and make a difference to patients and their families.

“Our services to the local community include consultant-led inpatient care, respite bed, on call service, complementary therapies, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. Patients are treated holistically and our multi-disciplinary team create individually tailored care plans. Our free 24-hour helpline provides expert advice to patients, carers, care homes and medical professionals. We also offer a bereavement counselling service.

“The Covid crisis has presented many clinical and financial challenges in the last 22 months. Even pre-Covid, it was difficult to raise the funds we need to cover our expenditure, but now we face a real battle to make ends meet. While our shops, wellbeing services and fundraising events have been able to resume, we rely more than ever on the generosity of supporters such as Persimmon Homes to survive. We’re incredibly grateful for the fantastic support Persimmon Homes has provided in the past and continues to give to Alice House to enable us to continue to care for local people.”

Joan Peart, sales director for Persimmon Homes Teesside, added: “Alice House is a true Community Champion and plays a crucial role in caring for the people of Teesside.  It is very unfortunate how the pandemic has hampered their fund raising efforts and we are delighted to be able to support them with this £1,000 donation.”
