Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is reflecting on the success of their ‘Drive Through Donation Stations’, an initiative which was set up recently at different locations in Poole.
The hospice had made an urgent appeal to the public to donate their good quality, preloved clothes and furniture to help raise money for local people in the community with life-limiting illnesses.
Area Fundraiser Vicki Gray said, “We are blown away by the response that we had from the public and the generosity shown by so many.  A bag of donated items is worth approximately £30 and we received the equivalent of 1,000 bags, making the donation total an incredible £30,000! We offer our sincere thanks to everyone who was involved, from David Lloyd Clubs and Tower Park Entertainment who allowed us to use their car parks, to Store and Secure and Lok ‘n’ Store, to volunteers who helped us throughout the week and most importantly our generous donors.
“Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is preparing to reopen its charity shops in Christchurch, Wimborne, Westbourne and Ashley Cross. The donations received in the last week will mean that we have so many excellent items to sell and entice shoppers into our shops.  We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back!”
