Biz Gallery: Humour and passion at ‘An evening with AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn’
‘An evening with AFC Bournemouth’s Chairman, Jeff Mostyn’ was hosted by Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.
Held with kind support from Andy Price at his beachfront restaurant WestBeach, the event was attended by friends of the hospice, staff and volunteers.
They enjoyed drinks and canapés.
Jeff held a captivated audience as he humorously and passionately talked about his career, his time with AFC Bournemouth, the incredible journey that the club has experienced over the years and his support for his local hospice charity.
Clare Gallie, CEO, said: “In January, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care officially launched a year of activities to commemorate its 30th anniversary.
“The evening with Jeff Mostyn was one of many events which are part of a packed calendar of celebrations during 2022.
“Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has achieved so much in the past 30 years, helping over 8,000 patients, carers and loved ones to get the much-needed hospice care they deserve.
“None of this would have been possible without the incredible help and support from staff, volunteers, trustees and our community who have made the hospice the extraordinary beacon that it is.”
Guests at the event also heard about the hospice’s ’30 for 30’ campaign.
Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser Nicki Cluley said: “We launched ’30 for 30’ to mark the 30th anniversary of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.
“During 2022 we are 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.”
