Charity of the Year

Stewarts Garden Centres fundraise for a nominated charity every year as we aim to support our community. Our generous customers have raised a phenomenal amount for many different charities over the years and nominated many wonderful causes for 2019. 

Forest Holme Hospice – Charity of the Year at Stewarts Christchurch & Broomhill Garden Centres

Forest Holme Hospice is part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the town centre across the road from Poole Park, the Hospice is a short distance from the main hospital and offers a peaceful setting for the care of both patients and their families/carers. It is a centre of excellence in the care of people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

The care and support we give is individually tailored to meet the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of all those coming into contact with staff based at Forest Holme. In order that all kinds of distress are minimised, we aim to restore as much choice and control to individuals as is feasible, within the constraints of their illness. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported, both during a person’s illness and in bereavement.
