Teesside Hospice has annual running costs in excess of £2.5 million.  The Hospice receives in the region of one third of these costs from the local NHS and must therefore raise approximately £5,200 each and every day of the year from its own resources.  Teesside Hospice Trading Company exists to bridge the shortfall in funding and is supported by the local community in a variety of fundraising activities including charity shops, lotteries, community events and other sponsored events.


Teesside Hospice’s hopes for the future are simple: To provide and develop a sustainable needs-led specialist palliative care service to the local community.
