Staff and patrons of the Lord Nelson on Poole Quay have raised in excess of £20,000 since they started supporting Forest Holme Hospice back in 2015.
Hannah O’Hare, Fundraising Manager at Forest Holme Hospice Charity said “We are so grateful to Anna and the team at The Lord Nelson for choosing to support us in Donna’s memory. The team have raised enough money to fund 1,000 hours of specialist nursing care at the hospice.”
The next event in the Pub’s fundraising calendar is the ‘2018 Anniversary of Rock’, where ten local bands will entertain large crowds, and all ticket proceeds and money raised from a raffle will be donated to the hospice.
Landlady Anna Doyle, said “We hold various charity events throughout the year, but this one is very special us. We are committed to raising funds in memory of our much loved, and now departed friend Donna, who spent her last moments in Forest Holme”.
Forest Holme Hospice Charity helps to enhance the lives of adults from across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck who are facing a life limiting or terminal illness. The charity financially supports the specialist palliative care teams within Forest Holme Hospice, part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to be there for the patients and their families whenever, and wherever, they are needed.
