The Trust were sorry to bid farewell to one of its most valued members when Wendy Yeatman stepped down after serving as a volunteer trustee on our committee for around 15 years. Her contributions to our meetings and involvement in our activities will be greatly missed by all concerned.
Our picture shows our Chairman, Stuart Dean, presenting Wendy with a small token of our thanks for her contribution to the Trust over many years.
The Trust is made up of a relatively small group of volunteers attending committee meetings around 5 times a year and helping with fund raising activities.
We are always looking for suitable new members and if you feel this may be of interest contact the Chairman, details on the website.
The Trustees organised a bottle stall at Wimborne Folk Festival and were blessed with a beautiful day. It proved to be a very popular event with those attending and it was good to meet a number of old friends who had raised funds for PHCTT previously.
At the end of the day over £400 had been raised by the volunteers who helped thanks to those attending.
Photos below of the helpers before the event started, during and towards the end. Many thanks to all.

Helen Frank is currently receiving treatment for breast cancer at Poole Hospital and as she has received such wonderful support from the staff at Poole she, in consultation with her husband, Theo Frank, wished to raise some funds to benefit the cancer dept.

Not content with raising this sum for PHCTT, Helen is raising more money through the Just Giving website.
