LEISURE: Spring Ball to raise vital funds for hospice


After last year’s 25th anniversary ball, Forest Holme Hospice has announced dates for this year’s Charity Spring Ball. 

Forest Holme Hospice, has opened its doors in 1994, since then it has provided individually tailored quality care and support to around 1,000 adults each year across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck, with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. 

Tickets are now available to book at an early bird price which includes a welcome drink, delicious 3-course meal with 1/2 bottle of wine, coffee and chocolates. The Charity Spring ball is hosted by Paul Kinvig. The ball begins at 7pm and includes live entertainment, disco and games, as well as a silent auction, mystery boxes and a chance to win a wheelbarrow of wine, plus a few special surprises. The charity will also be arranging coach travel from Poole.

Fundraising Manager at Forest Holme, Paul Tucker said: “Last year, because it was our 25th anniversary, we decided to do something special and hosted our annual ball in a marquee within the walled garden of Upton Country Park. The feedback from our supporters was so positive, we decided to so something similar but this time in the idyllic grounds of Parley Manor.

Our focus now is to make sure that the hospice is here for the next 25 years and beyond, so that it can continue to care and support patients and their families during the most difficult time of their lives. The Spring Ball is an opportunity to celebrate the success of the hospice throughout the year whilst supporting the charity and raising awareness. Companies on board for sponsorship so far include The Dolphin Centre in Poole and Wessex Filters Ltd.”
