A Dorset-based hospice has celebrated its 30th anniversary with a glass flower display. 

Forest Holme hospice, Poole, has announced details of a special display of 1,000 handcrafted stained glass flowers to mark its 30th anniversary.

The free display is open to the public from April 27.

Visitors can also own one of the flowers crafted by Ellie Drake-Lee from Garden Glass Art.

This year marks 30 years since the charity was set up to raise funds for the specialist palliative care unit on Seldown Road, Poole.

Officially launched in April 1994, the hospice has cared for over 30,000 patients and families since.

CEO Hannah O'Hare said, “This year is an opportunity to reflect on all that has been achieved during the last 30 years, remembering all those whose lives have been touched by Forest Holme, and thanking everyone who has been a part of making the hospice what it is today.

"The remarkable unwavering support of our community has enabled us to care for thousands of local people living with life-limiting illnesses, so here's to the next 30 years of compassion, dignity, and quality end-of-life care for all.”
