The charity has thanked David Atkinson for his ‘immense’ contribution to the work of the hospice, firstly as a trustee and treasurer in which capacity he was hugely successful in expanding the charity’s income stream and, more recently, as general manager where he has been instrumental in setting up a small network of shops which are now making a substantial contribution to its income and expansion of our services. 

Paul said: “I’m excited to be joining the HospiceCare team to work in an innovative way to further develop their already established and vital community service across north Northumberland.”
