It’s been an extremely busy month of October for the hospice.

Sir Simon and Lady Jill Campbell appointed as Patrons 

The charity is delighted to announce the appointment of two new Patrons, Sir Simon and Lady Jill Campbell, who have been supporting the hospice since March 2019.

Living in the Poole area and sharing an interest in the work of local charities, Sir Simon and Lady Jill were introduced to the hospice’s then new Chief Executive, Clare Gallie, last year and were inspired by the care and support provided to local residents with life-limiting illnesses across Poole, East Dorset and Purbeck.

Since then, the relationship has flourished and the couple have kindly agreed to become Patrons of this much-loved local charity.

Bournemouth University Fusion Fundraising Academy student welcomed as intern

We’ve welcomed a student from the Bournemouth University Fusion Fundraising Academy on a ten-month internship programme.

Laura Feetham will be working primarily with the fundraising team over the coming months.

She will be based for up to three days per week in the hospice, while continuing to study at the University for the remainder of the week.

Please support grieving families by joining our ‘Time to Remember’ event, a way of celebrating and thanking the wonderful people in our lives and the loved ones we’ve lost.

Please like and share with your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours, we want everyone to know this is so much more than remembering.

It’s about community, and making sure that people who are going through incredibly tough times get the support and care they need and deserve.

We’re proud of our dedicated and committed team, especially seeing how everyone has dealt with the challenges and adversities that Covid-19 has presented to the charity.

This month we wanted to find out more about our Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, Nicky Cluley, who tells us lots of things that we never knew including her chance meeting with Eric Clapton and her favourite Caribbean island for romance.

Name: Nicki Cluley

Role: Corporate Partnership Fundraiser

What’s the best thing about your job?

Getting to work with lots of lovely people internally and externally and knowing that each day, whatever you do to build new relationships or raise awareness of what Lewis-Manning does, will make a real difference to the charity.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

Do something that you love and you’ll never work a day in your life!

Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn’t know.

I once asked a passer-by to take a photograph of myself and some friends in Las Vegas. The passer-by turned out to be Eric Clapton! I still have the picture.

Describe yourself in three words.

Friendly, fun, chatterbox.

If you were going to rule the world for the day, what law would you introduce?

I would ban jet-skis. Such a dangerous nuisance and so bad for the environment.

Your best place for a holiday is?

Barbados. We got married there so we have such lovely memories. We took the kids back on our 10th wedding Anniversary so that they could experience the Caribbean too. Can’t wait to go back, maybe for our 15th year anniversary?

Our aim is to help as many local people as possible, who are dealing with a life limiting illness, to live their precious lives well.

There is no charge to attend Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.
