Two not-for-profit organisations based in Poole have formed a charity partnership.

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care and Care South say they will be working on a series of initiatives together.

Simon Bird, Care South’s CEO, said: “The two charities, Care South and Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, share very similar values, which is why we are so pleased to cement our relationship with this partnership.

“There is so much that we intend to achieve together over the coming months and years, starting with our office and care home teams taking up the initiatives of Lewis-Manning and helping to raise funds to support the incredible work that they do in the communities, which our care homes sit at the heart of.

“Those initiatives build on the food, fun and friendship that is so apparent at all Care South’s care homes.

“The team are going to be busy getting involved in Lewis-Manning’s ‘The Great Dorset Tea Party’ and ‘Grow Some Sunshine’ in the next few weeks to kickstart our fundraising for the charity.”

Clare Gallie, CEO, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Care South, it is such a valued and important partnership to have.

“We have been so appreciative of everything that Care South have supported us with in the past and are delighted to be further strengthening our relationship by working and collaborating with them in the future.

“Their support will make a huge difference to the lives of the patients and families with life limiting illnesses that we help and support in Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset.”

Care South, a not-for-profit charity, is a leading provider of residential, dementia and nursing care.

It has 16 care homes, as well as Care at Home services, across the south of England.

Two years ago Care South announced the purchase of Lewis Manning Hospice Care’s former Crichel Mount site.

It plans to replace the former hospice with a new residential care home to be known as Marjorie House, in memory of Marjorie Lewis-Manning.
