Two new ambassadors have been appointed to help promote the work of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.

Husband and wife team, Mark and Carlie Palmer, owners of Luvwed, will be attending events to talk about the hospice’s work, encourage involvement in fundraising activities and promote Lewis-Manning across East Dorset.

Clare Gallie, Chief Executive Officer, said: “This is a really important role as it helps us to reach new people, inspire new fundraising activity, thank our supporters for the work they are doing and spread the word about how we can help people.

“As we enter a new, exciting phase of development, we are looking for local people to support our vision and help to promote our services to the wider community.

“Mark and Carlie have the drive and enthusiasm to be excellent ambassadors for the hospice and we very much look forward to working with them both.”

Carlie said becoming an ambassador was an honour.

She added: “The work that the hospice does helping people in our local community with life-limiting illnesses is inspirational and needs to be shared.

“We look forward to meeting as many people as possible to spread the word.”
