STAFF and patrons at a pub in Poole are celebrating after raising more than £30,000 for charity.

The Lord Nelson on Poole Quay has raised £30,853 for the Poole-based Forest Holme Hospice in 2015.

The pub started supporting Forest Home in memory of much-loved Donna Turner who was cared for by the hospice.

Each year the pub holds an Anniversary of Rock, and this year’s event, which saw 10 local bands play throughout the day, raised £4,284, taking Lord Nelson passed the £30,000 mark.

Paul Tucker, fundraising manager at Forest Holme Hospice Charity, said, “We are so grateful to landlady Anna and the team at Lord Nelson for supporting us over the past few years in Donna’s memory.

“They work so hard organising fundraising events, which are always so well attended by their loyal customers. They are already talking about what they can do next.”

This year Forest Holme Hospice Charity is celebrating its 25th anniversary. To find out more, visit
