The Pear Tree Fellowship June 2019

 

The Pear Tree Fellowship

Our May Meeting was a talk given about the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation.  Although there are many organisations raising money to help Cancer sufferers this is a group which is local to Dorset.  They work closely with other organisations and are a non profit making foundation. 

They told some of the stories which had led to donations.  When the news of cancer comes it may mean unemployment and an inability to pay a mortgage. It can be a shattering blow to so many things affecting the whole family. 

They have organised wonderful Fun raising events from Fashion Shows, a Ball once a year, Coffee mornings, Plant Sales and an evening with a former Harpist etc.  They organise Bingo Nights, Craft Fairs and Cookery Demonstrations all in the Dorset area. 

They have organised transport and parking costs for treatment as well as counselling, household modifications and respite holidays for patients as well as wigs and prosthetics. 

They turned up to speak to us full of enthusiasm and have obviously used this enthusiasm to get these things done for those who need help.  A great inspiration.

On June 11th we are looking forward to an afternoon Tea in the lovely garden of Jeanne Miller in Lydlinch Close.  Let us hope the weather will be as good as last year during that hot spell of weather.
