We think Lewis Manning does an amazing job with its hospice and seven retail charity shops – so much that we’ve loaned them self storage unit space to hold their donated furniture items.
It helps the charity because its stock level – which varies from crates of stock to a 12-seater dining room set – fluctuates throughout the year and the space we provide is flexible to meet their needs.
It operates seven charity shops in the area from Blandford, Ferndown and Wimborne to Bournemouth and Poole, all of which stock furniture. And it’s been doing this for 21 years!
Lewis-Manning Hospice in Poole, is a charity that provides free specialist palliative nursing day-care for local people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, including Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone disease. Four years ago the hospice made the decision to build a new facility that would allow for the care of patients overnight and, having moved into a new building, it is now phasing the opening of the bedrooms.
The hospice promotes acceptance, hope and peace of mind in a safe and calming environment, helping people live well through their illness and beyond. It aims to ensure that local people are given access to the support they may need to help them cope with their illness and the changes it may bring.
Its seven shops provide a significant income to help people whose lives have changed dramatically because of illness. For details of its furniture collection and house clearance service, call (01202) 760574.
