CEO at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, Clare Gallie, said, “We are thrilled and honoured to be the first organisation to receive this prestigious grant and want to thank Simon for nominating Lewis-Manning and to Care South in awarding the charity with this fantastic sum of money. Our partnership with the care homes and entire organisation is flourishing, which is fantastic to be part of. They share the same values as Lewis-Manning Hospice Care and long may this collaborative partnership continue, so that we can help more people and their loved ones in our community.”
Care South’s Chief Executive, Simon Bird, commented: “The Chairman’s 2020 Fund was set up to enable us to give back to the community, support those who support us and it is great to be able to award this grant to such a purposeful charity which sits at the heart of this community. The two charities, Care South and Lewis-Manning Hospice Care share very similar values, which is why we are so pleased to support the incredible work that they do locally.”
