Introducing the beautiful Lexi
Lexi belongs to Jane Potts, one of the partners at NFU Mutual Alnwick, who will be completing a gruelling 500 miles cycle challenge around Scotland next month to raise funds for HospiceCare and guess what - Lexi will be joining Jane every paw of the way!
Lexi will be travelling in a specially made 'tag along' that will be attached to Jane's bike - how cool is that! If you would like to sponsor Lexi and Jane please visit: https://mydonate.bt.com/teams/nfualnwick to make a donation, or you can contact Jane directly on email:
Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. It takes place from 1st-7th June every year.
Here at HospiceCare we have the most fantastically loyal and generous volunteers who have saved us over £108,000 last year in the hours they donated. Our volunteers are so brilliant at what they do for us they won the Mayor's Civic Award 2016/2017 for their contribution to the local area.
We're looking to make new FRIENDS - want to join us?

Here's our fabulous charity shop manager, Joyce Fairbairn, celebrating our success at winning the trophy for 'Best Dressed Window' at the annual 'Riding of the Bounds' in Berwick.
Special thanks also to our lovely volunteers who helped Joyce with the window display. Well Done Wear and Care xxx
We are pleased to announce that we now have our very own super-duper HospiceCare window stickers!
Would you be willing to display one in your car?
They are a great way of promoting our clinical services and are FREE OF CHARGE.
You can either send us a stamped address envelop and we'll pop one in the post, or call in at either our Alnwick reception or Berwick charity shop to collect in person.
