AFC Bournemouth support hospice care

Football club donates £1,000 to Dorset hospice charity

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has received a generous donation of £1,000 from the AFC Bournemouth Cherries’ Community Fund.

Said Jeff Mostyn Chair of AFC Bournemouth; “We’ve seen the work that Lewis-Manning Hospice Care does locally, and we know that they are dealing with some of the most challenging times due to COVID-19. The club decided to support five local hospices through its Community Fund because they are very much in the news at present, coping with challenging and unprecedented times due to coronavirus.”

Chief Executive at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, Clare Gallie, said: “We are delighted and grateful to receive such a wonderful boost at a time when not only are fundraising activities postponed, but when our team are working harder than ever, to ensure local people are given the very best care we can deliver.

Our nursing team are working ceaselessly to support patients and adapt our care and services during the ongoing pandemic.

“We know it cant be easy for AFC Bournemouth as they are missing out on the football match season and so its wonderful they recognise that every penny matters and we promise this donation will be put to good use and we’ll extend an invite to the committee and the team when its safe to do so, so they can see more about our work and where the funds go.”

Bournemouth is coming together to beat this invisible enemy. So let’s all join in. I can do without chipsticks and wine for a week to donate ten pounds. Maybe.
