FORUM Jewellers in Broadstone supported Forest Holme as its Charity of the Year during 2019, as the result of a customer online vote.

This coincided with Forest Holme’s 25th anniversary.

Forum Jewellers raised nearly £6000 for the hospice as a result of their fundraisers.

Throughout the year, the business hosted a variety of fundraising events, including a Dine with Diamonds and a Pearls and Prosecco evening, participating in the hospice’s Wear Yellow Day and Big Brunch activities.

Employee Deanna Shepherd took to the skies and completed a charity Wing Walk on top of a Boeing Stearman to help raise funds.

Fundraiser at Forest Holme, Kirsty Perks said: “We have really enjoyed working with Forum Jewellers over the past year and their on-going support has been invaluable. We want to thank them and their customers for helping to ensure that we can provide consistent and unconditional care not just now, but also in the future.”

Forum Jewellers Director, Helen Molloy added: “We’re so sad to be moving on from Forest Holme as they have been a joy to work with - so professional and supportive. We wish them every success with their fundraising in 2020.”

Forest Holme is part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and is supported by the charity, which needs to raise at least £850,000 each year to help enhance the NHS provision.

Improving provision at the hospice will help to deliver end of life care and support to more than 1,000 people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses each year.
