17/12/2019 Letter received from Clare Gallie at Lewis Manning Hospice following our donation (see below)

I am sorry for this direct email, however David and Paddy Rideal from our local Lewis-Manning Hospice Care fundraising group have recently advised me of the fabulous gift of over £240 that was presented to them at your Croquet Club AGM recently.

I wanted to write to you to offer my sincere thanks for your generosity and kindness in thinking of the work that we are doing to help local people with life limiting illness in the area. I also understand that you have chosen our Hospice again to be the charity for your club to support over the coming year – thank you so very much once again. The new Hospice services that we are launching at Swanage Hospital in the New Year are going to cost in the region of £60k per year to fund and your support in helping us to raise this money is very much appreciated.

I do hope that we have the opportunity to meet up in the coming year, but in the meantime have a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2020.
