Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC) have presented a cheque for £500 to Julia’s House, the children’s hospice charity dedicated to bringing comfort and care to families across Dorset and Wiltshire.
The donation, made by Jim Stewart, Chief Executive of Poole Harbour Commissioners came about following the success of Poole Harbour Boat Show 2017, in association with Sunseeker, which saw more than 30,000 people visit Poole Harbour for the three day event in May.
Tai Saxty, Community Fundraiser at Julia’s House said: “It was a pleasure to visit PHC and collect the cheque from Jim Stewart after hearing about their support for Julia’s House.
Julia’s House is a lifeline for families facing a desperate reality – that their child may not live into adulthood. Our nurses and carers help families make the most of the time they have together, providing practical and emotional support through frequent, short breaks for mums and dads and social opportunities for the whole family. Julia’s House can’t change the outcome for these families, but we can make a real difference to the quality of their lives.”
Jim Stewart, Chief Executive of Poole Harbour Commissioners said: “Poole Harbour Commissioners are delighted to be able to support Julia’s House, which provides such fantastic support to children and their families across Dorset.”
