Why we all should give our support

A SHEER level of professionalism.

That’s what has impressed Martin Levinson the most during his involvement with Hartlepool & District Hospice.

Martin is a solicitor and a partner with Tilly Bailey & Irvine solicitors. He has also been involved with various charitable organisations for more than 20 years.

He was approached to work with the Hospice by the chief executive at the time as the previous trustee with legal expertise had retired.

He is involved with the hospice board of trustees on an operational and managerial basis and not in the day-to-day delivery of the clinical services.

Talking about the hospice team, Martin said: “I continue to be impressed at how professionally the hospice is run.

“I am pleased to be able to contribute in a small way to such a worthwhile charity.”

Martin added: “Lots of professionals, managers and company directors have learned valuable lessons during their careers which would greatly benefit the voluntary sector. We have a duty to put something back in to the community.

“That is why I provide my time and expertise on a voluntary basis. We shouldn’t hesitate, to volunteer so that our local hospice can benefit from the experience, knowledge and expertise we have gained throughout our careers.”
