A recent summer fete in aid of Lewis-Manning Hospice on Swanage seafront was a huge success raising over £1600, with tourists and locals eager to buy and help the Dorset-based Hospice.
The fete was organised by The Studland Supporter Group, a group of volunteers who actively support and fundraise for Lewis-Manning Hospice. Tasty treats, toys and crafts were available to buy with many selling out due to high demand.
Over the years, The Studland Supporter Group have raised thousands of pounds for Lewis-Manning Hospice by organising and hosting a range of fundraising and awareness events, including concerts, golf club dinners, fetes and more.
Clare Gallie CEO of Lewis-Manning Hospice, said: “We were delighted by the success of the Swanage fete and are extremely grateful to The Studland Supporter Group and all of the incredible work they do to support Lewis-Manning Hospice. This money will enable us to continue our work helping local people with life-limiting illnesses.”
