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.
Theo was at that time Worshipful Master of Rowena Lodge in Bournemouth and through that organisation and events held, the sum of £910.00 was raised for PHCTT.
Not content with raising this sum for PHCTT, Helen is raising more money through the Just Giving website.
The Annual General Meeting of Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust will be held on Tuesday 3rd December 2019 at 2.30pm in the Boardroom at Poole NHS Trust
For the second year Corfe Hills School have chosen our Trust to benefit 50% of the sponsorship proceeds from their Annual Walk. This year they raised the fantastic total of £5,088.28. A wonderful effort from all concerned. We thank the school for once again choosing Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust to benefit from this event.
The current President of Broadstone Wessex Bowls Club, John Hall, made contact with our Chairman saying that their club were proposing to make PHCTT their chosen charity for this year. Several of their members had received treatment for cancer at Poole Hospital in recent times and they wished to acknowledge this fact and thought our charity was the best one to receive their funds as we were made up of volunteers, with all the funds going towards our good works.
They held an Open Day in May, where coaching of inexperienced players took place and all visitors could have a go !
Other events and collections were made during the year and a total of £821.79 was presented to the Treasurer of the Trust, Greg Bemment at the Clubs recent AGM.
Since this presentation the Ladies section of the Club have donated a further £140.73.
The Chairman of PHCTT was invited to a Coffee Morning being held at the Reform Synagogue in Bournemouth by the Nisa-Nashim Wessex group.
This is a group of Jewish and Muslim ladies who work together to build bridges between their two communities.
For their third Annual Coffee Morning they decided to support Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust and the Chairman, Stuart Dean, was asked to give a talk on the background relating to our charity. He was delighted to do so and was pleased to receive support from the group and to spread the word of it’s existence.
The coffee morning raised a total of £105.00 plus gift aid. We look forward to continuing our connection with Nisa-Nashim in the future.
This Annual event is organised by Broadstone Golf Club and includes Dudsbury G C , Parkstone G C and Knighton Heath G C. The object is for each club to enter a team of 4 and they play 4 rounds of golf at each club course over one day, thats 16 hours of carrying golf clubs up and down hills covering the distance of a marathon.
We were pleased to hear that this year the events proceeds were being donated to Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust, after the event it appeared that around £3,000 had been raised for us – a terrific result – Thanks to everyone for their support.
Charlotte Biss from Ashley Heath contacted the Chairman of PHCTT in March of this year saying she was proposing to organise, with the help of family and friends, a charity event in May to raise funds for us. Poole Hospital has helped not only herself but many close family and friends and she wished to give something back.
She proposed having eight inches of her hair cut off and donated, creating a calendar of her brother and friends for sale, together with an auction for which many local firms had donated prizes, food sales etc.
The day arrived and she was very lucky in having beautiful weather to hold the event at her home. She raised the magnificent sum of £3,693.77 !! and is already thinking of ways she can do something more in the future.
Wonderful job, Charlotte – thanks a million.

The Trust was delighted to hear that it had been nominated as one of the three charities which would be supported during 2018 by the staff of Cobham’s of Wimborne.
We were approached to see if we could provide some prizes for the Annual Family Fun Day which was held in July. Due to our strong connection with local branches of Tesco we were able to give them a selection of over 20 prizes to help make this a very successful event.
