Lewis-Manning Hospice Care and Care South have formed a charity partnership and will be working on a series of initiatives together.
Care South’s CEO, Simon Bird said, “The two charities, Care South and Lewis- Manning Hospice Care share very similar values, which is why we are so pleased to cement our relationship with this partnership. There is so much that we intend to achieve together over the coming months and years, starting with our office and care home teams taking up the initiatives of Lewis-Manning and helping to raise funds to support the incredible work that they do in the communities, which our care homes sit at the heart of. Those initiatives build on the food, fun and friendship that is so apparent at all Care South’s care homes. The team are going to be busy getting involved in Lewis-Manning’s
“The Great Dorset Tea Party” and “Grow Some Sunshine” in the next few weeks to kickstart our fundraising for the charity.”
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care CEO, Clare Gallie added, “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Care South, it is such a valued and important partnership to have. We have been so appreciative of everything that Care South have supported us with in the past and are delighted to be further strengthening our relationship by working and collaborating with them in the future. Their support will make a huge difference to the lives of the patients and families with life limiting illnesses that we help and support in Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset.”
