Weldmar Hospice Trust

Dorchester is the home of the Weldmar Hospice Trust. It is an independent charity which supports people who's lives are affected by cancer and other life limiting conditions. The charity is well supported in the town and has a number of different shops that raise funds for their important work.

My daughter has recently started as volunteer, working in the bookshop. It is located in South Street and is always well stocked with generous donations.

In Trinity Street, there is a large shop, which sells a good selection clothing and house ware items. The shop is often bustling, but is always kept tidy and organised.

One of Weldmar's three outlet stores is currently located on the Poundbury West Industrial Estate, but will be moving shortly to bigger premises. This shop stocks furniture and larger household items and a selection of clothing.

Whichever shop you visit you will always receive a warm welcome from the staff. Donations are always appreciated. The trust runs 19 shops in Dorset and 3 furniture outlets. 

Recently I attended a training course held at Hammick House in Poundbury. 

Weldmar offer a selection of training courses relating to their work. 

Looking back to my blog that was posted on the 8th March 2014, it seems that I was sitting in the sunshine on the terrace of Carluccios. That is not the case this year, today is dull and damp, but spring is nearly here and Dorchester is a cheerful town whatever the weather is doing!
