Forest Holme Hospice in Poole has announced details of the biggest ball in the charity’s history to mark its 25th Anniversary this year.

Forest Holme Hospice 25th Anniversary

The Secret Garden Party will be taking place during Hospice Awareness Month in the beautiful surroundings of the Walled Garden at Upton Country Park also in Poole on Saturday 8 June.

Tickets to this very special event will include a welcome drink, delicious 3-course meal, with half a bottle of wine, plus entertainment from Chic and Nile Rogers tribute band Le Freak.

Since opening its doors in 1994, Forest Holme Hospice 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 such as Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s, heart disease and respiratory illness.

“2019 marks 25 years since Friends of Forest Holme – as it was known then – was set up to raise funds for the new specialist palliative care unit,” said Paul Tucker, fundraising manager at Forest Holme. “Since then, donations from supporters have helped the hospice to care for around 20,000 adults and their families and the charity has grown to meet the increasing demand for the hospice services.

“Due to it being a special year we wanted to put on a unique event to not only mark the anniversary but also to raise vital funds so that we can continue to be here for future patients and their families during the most difficult time of their lives.”

Tickets are £85 per person (£850 for a table of 10) and can be purchased from the fundraising office on 01202 670644 or email
