A long-term supporter of Hartlepool & District Hospice has revealed plans for a fundraising event.

Tessa Dollin is planning an evening of live music and karaoke and the fun will be held at The Blacksmiths Arms in Hartlepool on May 22.

Tessa also has prizes donated by former Dancing on Ice star, Andrei Lipanov who coaches her on the ice at Billingham Forum.

Performing on the night is vocalist Tess, along with the opportunity for guests to get up and try the karaoke, as well as an auction and raffle.

Tess said: “The hospice is a charity which I have supported for many years now, through performing at events and volunteer work in various roles. I’m really excited to be able to use my two favourite hobbies to hopefully raise lots of money for a very important cause.”

Hospice fundraiser Greg Hildreth said “Thanks to Tess and everyone else involved in what is going to be a fun night with some really unique prizes.

“Everything raised on the night will go towards caring for our patients and supporting their families.”

The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £3.

They are available to buy on the night, or in advance from The Blacksmith’s Arms, from Tess on 07541 459530 or from the hospice on (01429) 855529.
