For 2017 we are proud to be supporting Julia’s House, the Dorset & Wiltshire Children’s Hospice, at Stewarts Christchurch and Broomhill Garden Centres.
Julia’s House is not a typical children’s hospice. They provide practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at their hospice.
We will be running events throughout the year to raise funds for this worthy charity, as well as having collection tins at our tills. At our popular Christmas Preview Evening all proceeds will go to Julia’s House, as do a proportion of ticket sales for the spooky Pumpkin Evening towards he end of October.
Our generous customers raised £10,700 in 2016 for Bournemouth Hospital Charity at Christchurch, and £4,750 for Lewis Manning Hospice at Broomhill, and we hope we can help raise the same again if not more this year!
Again we will have fundraising opportunities throughout the year, as well as ongoing collections for this invaluable cause.
