Care South, a not-for-profit leading provider of residential and care at home services across the south of England, has selected charity partner, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, as one of the beneficiaries of its Chairman’s 2020 Fund, awarding the charity £3,000.
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity helping people with life-limiting illnesses and their families across East Dorset. Its mission is to provide the local community with outstanding hospice care and support by helping as many local people as possible, who are dealing with a life limiting illness, to live their precious lives well.
The Chairman’s 2020 Fund was set up with the aim of supporting ‘Care South’s Friends’ and has been established with the aim of benefiting Care South employees, volunteers and community groups that provide a community service to the residential care homes, care at home offices, clients and/or residents.
Simon Bird, Care South’s Chief Executive, commented: “We are delighted to be able to support such an important local charity in Lewis-Manning Hospice Care with a number of initiatives across all our care homes. One of the upcoming initiatives that we get involved in is Afternoon Tea Week, which takes place in August and last year, our homes raised just under £600 for the charity. The two charities have worked closely together for some time now and the award made from the Chairman’s 2020 Fund is a further way of supporting Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.”
CEO at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, Clare Gallie, added, “We are so thankful to Care South for this incredible donation and for the continuous support that we generously receive from Care South. Our partnership with the care homes and entire organisation is going from strength to strength which is fantastic to be part of. They share the same values as Lewis-Manning Hospice Care and this collaborative partnership is so important to us so that we can continue helping more people and their loved ones in our community.”
