Corks were popping at a pub on Poole Quay as staff cheered raising £30,000 for Forest Holme Hospice Charity, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
Staff and patrons of the Lord Nelson on Poole Quay have so far raised £30,853 since they started supporting Forest Holme back in 2015, in memory of much-loved local, Donna Turner, who was cared for by the hospice.
The pub’s recent annual Anniversary of Rock event, which featured ten local bands playing all day, raised £4,284, which took them over £30k mark. Paul Tucker, Fundraising Manager at Forest Holme Hospice Charity, said, “We are so grateful to landlady Anna and the team at The Lord Nelson for supporting us over the past few years in Donna’s memory. They work so hard organising fundraising events, which are always so well attended by their loyal customers. They are already talking about what they can do next.”
Forest Holme Hospice opened its doors in 1994 and since then has provided individually tailored quality care and support to around 1,000 adults each year across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck, with advanced cancer and other life- limiting illnesses such as Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s, heart disease and respiratory illness.
