Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has brought on board Frettens Solicitors’ Marketing & Commercial Director Lewis Barr, as a member of the Income Generation and Marketing Sub Committee (IGM) to the Board of Trustees.

The voluntary role provides expert marketing, digital support and advice to the IGM Sub Committee and the Head of Marketing & Communications.

Hospice CEO Clare Gallie advised, “We are so pleased to have Lewis on board in this voluntary capacity.  He has an outstanding reputation for the work that he does at leading law firm, Frettens Solicitors and has an amazing depth and breadth of marketing knowledge and skills.”

Lewis said, “I was extremely flattered to be asked to join the hospice in this role and look forward to supporting them in the amazing work they do.

“The management team are clearly very forward-thinking and everyone I have met so far has been wonderful – they clearly care deeply about the charity and the families they help.

“Hopefully my experience and insight will prove to be valuable to the board and their new Head of Marketing & Communications, and together, we will be able to make a difference.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity and also to Frettens. It is great to be part of a firm that encourages and supports charitable work.”

About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity providing extraordinary care to patients and their loved ones facing a life-limiting illness across East Dorset & Purbeck. We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home. These include:

– Day hospices, virtual and in person

– Creative arts & wellbeing support

– Lymphoedema clinic

– Breathlessness clinic

– Bereavement & family support

Every year we support around 600 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area. This year we need your help to raise £3.4m to continue providing our important services in your community. Without these funds we could not exist.

Our important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.
