PHCTT Coffee Morning

Due to the generosity of the management and staff of Rick Stein Restaurant at Sandbanks the Trust held a Coffee Morning at their restaurant. Pam, Elaine and Jenny, Trustees of PHCTT worked very hard in arranging this very successful event which included a raffle with over 30 excellent prizes. It was a superb event to raise awareness of the work of the Trust and we hope to repeat the event sometime in the future. A total of £1,200 was raised by the charity towards future purchases of equipment for Poole Hospital.

Goodbye to valued Trustee, Wendy Yeatman.

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.

Folk Festival at Wimborne – June 2019

At the end of the day over £400 had been raised by the volunteers who helped thanks to those attending.

Masonic Fundraising donation to PHCTT

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.
