Harry Redknapp, who is a Patron of Lewis-Manning Hospice, will be opening their new charity shop in Seamoor Road, Westbourne, Bournemouth, on Friday 18th January 2019.
The recently crowned and hugely popular Winner of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here has joined the Hospice team and supporters in an appeal for more quality clothing and designer items to fill the shelves prior to opening.
Vanessa Howden-Smith from the fundraising team at Lewis-Manning Hospice, which supports patients and families in Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding Dorset area who are facing a life-limiting illness, said “If you have had a new year tidy up, or you’ve just had a clear out of quality items which you simply no longer wear, or are hoarding those Christmas presents you don’t really want then please consider donating them to help fill the shelves and racks in our wonderful new shop. You can bring your items to the Hospice at 1 Critchel Mount Road, Lilliput, BH14 8LT, until Friday lunchtime or drop your items off to the shop at 41 Seamoor Road.
“Harry will be opening the shop at 4:30pm this Friday and we’d be delighted to welcome you.”
Lewis-Manning Hospice has other shops at Blandford, Ashley Cross and Wimborne and is also keen to hear from those who may have time to spare by supporting it as a Volunteer this year or creating their own fundraising event. Please contact Fundraising on 01202 672660
Lewis-Manning Hospice invites you to Tie a Yellow Ribbon in February.
Lewis-Manning, an independent Hospice based in Lilliput, Dorset, are launching Tie A Yellow Ribbon and Go Yellow this February and would like businesses and individuals to take part to support them.
Vanessa Howden-Smith from Lewis Manning said, “The idea is to raise awareness of our Charity and what we do for the community. We are inviting individuals and businesses to support us by giving us a donation in exchange for a yellow ribbon, to which they could then add a message or the name of someone whom they have loved and lost. It doesn’t have to be someone Lewis-Manning has cared for.”
Individuals can obtain the yellow ribbons from any Lewis-Manning shop, or you can call Fundraising on 01202 708470 who will write and display the ribbon for you.
Vanessa adds, “If you are a business who want to take part then we need you to pop up a tree, create a window or a wall to entice your customers to purchase ribbons. We are also encouraging businesses to get their teams fundraising for us and set aside a day, a week or a month supporting our Tie A Yellow Ribbon and/or Go Yellow for February theme. Anything from baking yellow cakes, dressing in yellow clothes or sticking a sunflower in your hair, the options are endless. You could even dye your beard yellow, don yellow Marigolds or perhaps wear a yellow wig. Every penny raised means so much to us and to the people we care for who are living with a life-limiting illness.
The more people in Dorset who join in with our Tie A Yellow Ribbon and Go Yellow for February will help our fundraising efforts for 2019, and also assist us in raising the awareness of Lewis-Manning Hospice.”
