Welcome to Hartlepool & District Hospice
Hartlepool & District Hospice are pleased to offer an additional service to local families. The Hospice is now linked to a new and free service, Muchloved, which allows a family member to set up a memorial page in memory of a loved one. It is free and you can invite all your family and friends to add stories, memories, photos and music creating a special memorial and a celebration of a loved one’s life.
If you wish to fundraise for the Hospice, Muchloved can also be used to create a tribute fund which shows how much has been raised and donated in memory of your loved one. This creates a beautiful legacy and lasting tribute and enables the Hospice to continue helping other local people.
As part of the site, the Hospice also has its very own Celebrate a Life Garden. This is a special virtual online garden where family can place their tribute funds, showing their support for the Hospice and celebrating the life of their lost loved ones.
One such tribute page is for Angela Pearl, created by her mother Gina. Gina started to build the memorial page just two weeks after Angela’s death and said that the more she created and added to it the more comfort she got from it.
Gina said it really does help her, especially when family and friends have added to it too.
Angela’s page was created just a year ago and Gina still views it and adds to it when she feels she needs to be close to her daughter.
In the space of this short year Gina, with the support of many family and friends, has raised a staggering £6,305 for the Hospice.
