Princess Alice Hospice Community Fundraiser, Tim Green visited the new Sainsbury’s store at Surbiton Station on Friday 23 May for its official opening and to celebrate the partnership between Longcross and Sainsbury’s that will see the charity benefit from the skills and expertise of the construction company. 

Each new store opened by Sainsbury’s and completed by their contractors Longcross sees the two companies select a local charity to benefit either financially or by gifts in kind. Longcross will shortly be carrying out maintenance work on the Surbiton Princess Alice Hospice shop storeroom and giving the shop façade a makeover. 

Tim met with Leigh Russell from Longcross, Amanda Reeves-Dines, Project Manager, Sainsbury’s, Nav Patel, Store Manager and Liz Barker, Area Manager. 

  • Princess Alice Hospice is a registered charity. It provides specialist end of life and palliative care free of charge to people with advanced illness and those approaching the end of their lives. The charity provides support to families and friends at every stage if illness and after death. 
  • The Hospice catchment area includes Surrey, South West London and Middlesex serving a population in excess of 1 million. 
  • Over £8 million is needed each year to provide these vital and much needed services, with limited NHS funding over 77% of funding must be raised through  voluntary donations and fundraising.
