CHARITIES


November 2018 - We welcome our newest charity  - the Forest Holme Hospice.

 

The Hospice is part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and cares for people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. The hospice also supports the family members, friends and carers during the illness and bereavement.

Forest Holme was suggested by one of our members whose husband was so lovingly cared for by them. He was a great supporter of Wessex Chorus and from November 2018 we are pleased to Have Forest Holme as our nominated Charity; we will be fundraising for them for the next two years. We were delighted to be able to visit them and were warmly welcomed by the staff. The Hospice needs to raise £850,000 per year in order to keep running - a big task!

SOME OF OUR FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES


 

In our 10th Anniversary Year we are continuing our exciting partnership with the Bournemouth Blind Society.

We are currently working to raise funds for them and have already performed many concerts, starting with our “Joy filled Summer’s evening” in July 2016.

Our 10th Anniversary Launch concert in 2017 saw the Mayor of Bournemouth present them with a cheque for £3680.20 from us.

SOME OF OUR FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES


In February 2016 we finished working with Help & Care in Pokesdown, after two happy years of sharing the high and low notes!!

“As a community choir, whose whole purpose is to promote the joy of giving through music, it has been a privilege for us to help raise funds for Help and Care which provides such wonderful support for older people in our local community.”

Our very first charity was the Alzheimer’s Society – which offers support to people with dementia and their carers. 

Our second was Children’s Wish Bournemouth – granting wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. Their aim is to bring a bit of magic and special memories at a difficult time in a child’s life.

Our third was the Youth Cancer Trust – a charity providing support and free activity holidays for young people diagnosed and living with any malignant disease.

Last year was Help & Care Bournemouth, and our current charity is the Bournemouth Blind Society.
