Flying high at 80!

We’re constantly in awe of the lengths some people will go to support our Hospice – and Alison Ross, one of our volunteers, is an amazing example of someone who goes that extra mile.


Junior Great North Runners step up to the Mark!

We had a brilliant day with our 50 Junior Great North Runners who joined us on the NewcastleGateshead quayside in this year’s Junior Great North Run on Saturday, 9 September. They have helped raised an incredible £5,000 thanks to their amazing efforts. Here are some of the photos from the day. They are true superstars and we can’t thank them enough.

These are just a few photos of our incredible TeamTynedale Great North Runners! We’re sure you’ll agree that they all look amazing and we are so proud of them. Well done everyone and thank you so much for all of your support!

Bags of Help

We’ve had a busy few days counting up donations from our recent bag pack at M&S Hexham last weekend, thanks to all those who have helped raise such a fantastic amount for the Hospice.

Stroll On Launches!

This week we see the launch of a very special account of one man’s journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats – on foot! In April 2016, Chris Francis from Humshaugh in Northumberland, set out to complete a long held ambition to walk the length of Britain. Stroll On! is an inspiring and entertaining account of his journey and is available now to purchase.
