Weldmar Hospicecare Trust
Weldmar Hospicecare Trust is an independent charity working in Dorset. All our services are provided free of charge. 70% of the funds we need is raised locally; the rest is given by the NHS. We are the only agency providing specialist palliative care in north, south and west Dorset. Our job is to support people in Dorset affected by cancer and other life-limiting diseases, largely at the end of life. We work both with patients and their families. We also provide respite services for people with complex long-term progressive conditions. As the only specialist agency in the area we also educate our colleagues in primary care and the acute and independent sectors on how to deliver high quality generalist palliative care. We support patients living at home through our specialist nursing service , social groups and day hospices in Weymouth, Dorchester and Shaftsbury. People needing in-patient services come to Joseph Weld Hospice in Dorchester for symptom control, respite or end of life care. We use doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a chaplain, complementary therapists, art and music therapists, social workers, bereavement workers and over 250 patient care volunteers to do our work.

2010 Midnight Walk for Weldmar Hospicecare

Vanessa Coleman

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page.


I am doing the Weldmar Midnight Walk on 21st August for our local hospice charity.Unfortunately my friend Sallie had to pull out as her sister is very ill with cancer and so my daughter Hazel will now be doing this with me. We'll be walking 10km (six miles!) in the dark with over 1,000 other people.It would be great to raise as much money as we can for the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust who provide care and support for patients who are terminally ill. 

Please support us as every penny counts, and finally a massive Thankyou to all those who have pledged their support through sponsorship so far. 

Please give as much as you can, and if you're a UK taxpayer, don't forget to claim the Gift Aid.

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
