Harry Redknapp, Patron of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, has written a compelling letter of thanks to the supporters of the charity in what he describes as “an unprecedented year”.
Harry said, “I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank the individuals, groups, companies and foundations who have kindly chosen to support our charity in what has been an unprecedented year. Your generous help has allowed us to do everything in our power to continue to provide quality care for our patients across East Dorset and Purbeck. Enabling us to support local people who are living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
“This year Lewis-Manning Hospice Care took an active and early role in our local community supporting patients with daily and weekly communication via the telephone, video calls and home visits for those that really needed them.
“It is clear to see that the personal life of each and every one of us has been turned upside down in these last months and I cannot say enough good things about the hospice team and all that they are doing to help our local community during the pandemic. I have total respect for their never-ending efforts.
“Patients, volunteers, and staff are all directly impacted by your overwhelming generosity and support; thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
