Gareth Malone has a lot to answer for! It was his 2012 series that promoted the idea of the workplace choir as a sort of bonding experience – which is exactly what has been happening over the last two months in Tynedale Hospice at Home’s Bookshop at around 6.00 pm on a Thursday. Professional staff members like Lorraine Thompson (Office Manager), Alison Hands (Volunteer and Office Administrator), and Cathy Bates (Fundraising Officer and Events Coordinator) have been joining volunteers, bereavement counsellors, nurses and Hospice Chair of Trustees Michael Jackson to learn numbers like Randy Newman’s You got a friend in me and Ray Davies’ Days. Gareth’s programmes always work towards a public event. For The New Hospice Choir the moment of truth will be on Friday June 20 at Hexham’s Queen’s Hall, as part of an evening of music and dance which they are calling A Singing Spectacular.

We have published two new leaflets to describe our services and how you can support us in delivering them. They are being widely distributed throughout Tynedale and beyond.
Thank you to those who have offered to volunteer in the new shop. If you haven’t already heard from us, you will do soon.
Our new shop at Merton Road, Ponteland is now open but we will still be really pleased to hear from anyone who might be interested in volunteering in either the tea room or the shop (or both)!

We are delighted to inform you that at the Board meeting of the 7th of January 2014 the Board unanimously accepted and approved proposals for the establishment of a pre-bereavement Family Support Service. This will complement our current services and expand the range of services we are able to offer the people of Hexham and Tynedale.
The service will initially be developed as a one year pilot and will be subject to review and Board consideration about how we then take the service forward beyond the pilot year. We are confident that this is a welcome development.
We are pleased that the Rev. Janet Jackson has accepted the post of Lead for Family Support Services and will lead the development, implementation and review of this service.
Tynedale Hospice at Home is a local charity based in Hexham covering the wider community of Tynedale and West Northumberland. Unlike many traditional hospices, we do not have in-patient beds and take our care to those who need it, in a place of their choice. This enables people, with a life-limiting illness, to be cared for in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by family and friends, at one of the most difficult times of life.
In offering a range of free services to all those in Tynedale who need our care, support, help and advice as their illness progresses and lives draw to a close, our professionally trained staff and volunteers bring their skills and hands-on care to support those who choose to be cared for at home. Each patient and family is treated as an individual with specific needs. We offer care, bereavement services, family support and hospital transport using nurses, support workers and volunteers.
Respect – a confidential service for each individual and their circumstances
Dignity – for those who are dying and their families
Professionalism – our staff and volunteers are trained to give high quality end of life care
