Commenting on her new position Heidi said, “It is so satisfying to now be working for my local community hospice charity. I’m very grateful for the overwhelming support that I’ve been shown so far, with so many people wanting to get behind me and the hospice.
“I originally joined Lewis-Manning as Retail Manager at the hospice’s new Swanage Retail shop on the High Street, which opened back in July 2022. The shop has been an amazing success and has created some incredible support from the local community, donations, volunteers and sales, it’s been great for hospice awareness.
“In my new role I’m looking forward to continuing to raise awareness and bringing on board lots of local community groups and organisations across the area as well as encouraging new volunteers to get involved with our charity.
“It’s been brilliant to open our new office hub in Swanage and are keen to bring regular updates on progress being made here.
