John Lewis & Partners in Poole chose Lewis-Manning to be one of the local charities to receive a £1,000 donation as part of the company’s ‘Give A Little Love Christmas’ campaign.
Vicky Lock, Department Manager at John Lewis & Partners Poole said, “During the pandemic the world has changed, and the John Lewis Partnership has been inspired by the tremendous power of kindness. Driven by our purpose and commitment as a force for good, it is also traditionally a time when we work in our communities to make a real difference. ‘Give a Little Love’ is one of the biggest ever Partnership campaigns supporting the communities we live and work in. We are well aware of the incredible work that Lewis-Manning Hospice Care does in the community, caring and supporting for patients and their families who are living with life-limiting illnesses. It was an easy choice for us to make when deciding which charity we wanted to donate to. Their important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.”
