Teesside Hospice and MFC Foundation have announced they will be working together on a number of projects that will see two of Teesside’s most loved charities coming together.

The work they do is incredible, it takes a special kind of person to be able to deliver what they do.

“Our work aligns with theirs in so many ways. We both have the Teesside community at heart. It’s people who makes those communities and both charities aim to support those people, those communities, as much as we can.”

Among the aims of Teesside Hospice is the drive to ensure people living with a terminal illness live as well as possible for as long as possible.
