Hospice's Move Proves a Point

Article excerpt

LINGFIELD Warehousing, based at Lingfield Point, Darlington's premier business park, has again proved its adaptability and welcomed the St Teresa's Hospice fundraising and retail storage operations as its latest customer.

The Hospice is leasing 50,000 sq ft of office and warehousing space, from which its vital fundraising and retail operations, including online and ebay shops, will be managed.

The fundraising team will occupy dedicated offices and the retail team will utilise the space to store, organise and distribute the huge number of items donated for sale in the six Hospice shops around R

Large items will be sold directly from the warehouse.

Lingfield Warehousing is based on the Lingfield Point business park, owned by parent company Marchday Group plc. The company has half-a-million square feet of ambient storage space in facilities that are within a 24-hour manned secure area.

Lingfield Warehousing also has a comprehensive range of facilities for companies with smaller storage requirements.

Meadow, one of the largest single storey office buildings in the North, has also been leased temporarily to the Hospice to allow St Teresa's to use Lingfield Point for a broad range of events and activities.

Meadow offers 50,000 sq ft of fitted out accommodation capable of hosting a major 21st century workforce.

Last year, the Hospice held a hugely successful Christmas Cracker concert in Meadow, which was sponsored by Darlington Operatic Society, and more ambitious events are planned.

Money raised by these activities helps to fund the Hospice's range of services, including day care, In-patient care, Hospice at Home, complementary therapies and bereavement support, which are provided free of charge to patients and carers across Teesdale, South Durham and North Yorkshire. …
