Meet our Fundraisers

Our Fundraisers are based at the Hospice in Gosforth, Newcastle and they're here to help you! Whether it’s to provide advice, resources, support or ideas - you’re guaranteed to get bags of enthusiasm! Please call 0191 246 9123 and ask for the Fundraiser in your area.

We also have a team of Face2Face fundraisers who help us to raise money through communicating with supporters, telling local people about regular giving and our lottery, and going out and about in the North East - find out more here.
