Hartlepool’s hospice is getting set to hold an afternoon tea and fashion show to raise funds for patient care services.

The event, which will be held at the Hardwick Manor Hotel in Hesledon, will see guests enjoy an afternoon tea followed with a fashion show by the Eden Boutique.

There will also be a range of stalls selling gifts and fashion items, as well as a raffle - all in aid of Alice House.

The hospice is teaming up with Tilly Bailey & Irvine Law Firm once again, along with Waltons Clark Whitehill accountants and business advisors, to put on the event.

Carolyn Tilly, managing partner at Tilly, Bailey & Irvine, said “We’re delighted to put our name to this event in support of the fantastic work that continues to be done by Alice House Hospice.

“We’re expecting a wonderful turnout for a great day of activities and networking, and we hope that we will all be able to make a significant difference by contributing and helping those who need that support most of all.”

Carol Sennett, corporate fundraiser at Alice House, added: “The event is a lovely afternoon which has now become a regular in our hospice calendar.

“I would like to express our thanks to Tilly Bailey & Irvine for the support they have lent to this event since its inception in 2015 and to Waltons Clark Whitehill for their co-sponsorship.

“It is wonderful to see ladies from both the corporate sector and the local community support our vital work.”

The event takes place on Thursday, September 13, and tickets cost £22.50 per head.
