Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has teamed up with Yellow Buses for the launch of their ‘30 for 30’ campaign.
Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser Nicki Cluley said, “We are launching ’30 for 30’ to mark the 30thanniversary of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, which takes place during 2022.
30 years ago, it was our founder, Mrs Marjorie Lewis-Manning, whose generosity and inspiration started Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, with a vision to help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Since 1992 the charity has helped over 8,000 patients, carers and loved ones and hope we can do it for another 30 years and more!
During the year we will be encouraging 30 local businesses to pledge to raise £1,000 each, in order for the charity to raise £30,000 from 30 businesses in its 30th year!”
Yellow Buses Sales & Marketing Manager Fiona Harwood added, “I heard Nicki speak at an event recently about the ’30 for 30’ initiative and immediately felt inspired to come on board and join the campaign. Knowing the amazing work that Lewis- Manning do, we wanted to be the 1st business to sign up and be able to help with the launch, as we also celebrate a very special year in 2022 as we will be marking our 120th year on Yellow Buses in Bournemouth, so it felt the right thing to do.
“Over the coming year we will be doing lots of external and internal fundraising initiatives, with customers, staff & partners. One of our events will be a ‘Go Yellow’ dressing up day which seems fitting as we share the colour yellow logo with the hospice. We are proud to be supporting our local hospice and making a real difference to the work that they carry out to support patients and their families in Poole, East Dorset & Purbeck.”
Nicki concluded, “I would like to say a huge thank you to Yellow Buses. I felt extremely proud to see the Lewis-Manning Hospice Care name on their bus signage today and we are so pleased to welcome them on board as our 1st charity pledge partner. It was also a real pleasure to finally meet Yellow Buses infamous mascot, Buster Bear!”

About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity established 29 years ago, providing extraordinary care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset. We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home.
– Day hospices, virtual and in person
– Creative arts & wellbeing support
– Lymphoedema clinic
– Better breathing clinic
– Bereavement & family support
Every year we support nearly 500 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area. To do this we need 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.
