Why donate?

Each year, Forest Holme Hospice cares for over 1,000 people across East Dorset. We don’t just care for those with life-threatening illness, we also support those closest to them. Although we are an NHS hospice, we need to raise over £2 million pounds over the next three years to ensure that we can continue providing compassionate, tailored and life-enhancing care to patients facing a life-limiting illness. However you choose to donate, your support will make a huge difference to local people. Thank you for your valuable support.
