A businessman has supported Hartlepool’s Alice House Hospice after helping one of his first customers.

Town restaurateur Darab Rezai who owns Twisted Ginger, in Church Square, donated £350 to the local charity after being approached by a potential customer who was suddenly in need of a venue after a booking issue elsewhere.

Mr Rezai, who was still preparing for the opening of Twisted Ginger, decided to open early for a private reservation.

The party spent £175 on the night, which he kindly matched before donating the entire sum to Alice House.

"It has been a really difficult time for charities so this kind of support is more valuable than ever.”
