Christchurch Rugby Club Women’s Team has shown their support for their local hospice by including the charity’s bright sunflower logo on their new kit.

Club President David McDonald, who is also a Trustee at the hospice advised, “I’m delighted that our women’s team decided to make Lewis-Manning Hospice Care their charity of the year for this season.  There will be ongoing fundraising activities taking place, involving the whole Christchurch Rugby Club community.”

Club Captain Becky Lancaster said, “It seemed really fitting to mark out charity partnership by having the logo on our shirts and an excellent way to spread the word about the amazing work that the charity does in the community, supporting patients and their loved ones with life limiting illnesses.”

About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity, established 30 years ago, providing extraordinary care to patients and their loved ones facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset. You have enabled the charity to support and care for more than 8,000 people during the past 30 years.

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 and respite support

– Creative arts & wellbeing support

– Lymphoedema clinic for cancer patients

– Better breathing clinic

– Bereavement & family support including in person, groups and carers support

What matters to you, matters to us. Paving the way for you and your loved ones for the next 30 years and to do this the charity needs to raise over £1.6m every year. 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.
