Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
It has always been extremely important to support our local hospices, but today it is more important than ever before. Because of your weekly £1s, we are still running our weekly draw and able to generate a regular and reliable income that Lewis-Manning Hospice Care can rely on. So THANK YOU!
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity, helping people with life-limiting illnesses and their families across East Dorset. The Hospice promotes acceptance, hope and peace of mind in a safe and calming environment – helping people to live well throughout their illness and beyond. They aim to ensure that local people are given access to the support they may need to help them cope with their illness and the changes it may bring.
The money raised by people taking part in the Local Hospice Lottery helps to fund these essential services and enables Lewis-Manning Hospice Care to keep caring for local families, when and where they need it most.
