Tonight’s charity – all funds raised will go to:
Lewis Manning Hospice
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity established 28 years ago, providing extraordinary care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck, East Dorset. We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home. These include: Day hospice, Creative arts & wellbeing support, Lymphoedema clinic for cancer patients, Better breathing clinic, Family bereavement & support
Every year we support nearly 500 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area. To do this we need to raise over £1.6m every year. Without these funds we could not exist. Our important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.

We cook from scratch and serve craft beers and premium cocktails with bags of personality. We work with the area’s best suppliers including Bournemouth’s Bad Hand Coffee, Ringwood’s Bake House 24, Dorset’s Black Cow Cheddar and pure milk vodka and of course our fantastic New Forest butcher and Poole based fishmonger. There’s beer from Brewdog and Sierra Nevada and a rather clever wine and gin list.
