Charities – giving generously…it’s a way of life!

Charities – giving generously…it’s a way of life!

We’ve been active in our support to the local and wider ranging communities, giving more away each year to the three charities chosen by the team and many local fundraisers. In total we gave away ice cream and money amounting to nearly £16,000 – a considerable rise on 2017.

During 2018 our two main charities were the Youth Cancer Trust, receiving over £2200, and Diverse Abilities receiving over £5500, Forest Holme Hospice with over £6100 for the patients, families, visitors and carers. As well as a plethora of Dorset fundraisers benefiting from local church and school raffles through to the large Children in Need.

For 2019 as well as the Youth Cancer Trust, who we have been supporting for over ten years, we will continue with Diverse Abilities and Forest Holme Hospice. We will also continue with 5p from every tub in our new Jurassic Range to be donated to the Jurassic Coast Trust.

Yay – more ice cream breakfasts!
Honeycombe has got to be the best ice cream EVER!! I can ‘think’ that I can’t eat anything….but actually there’s always room for some Purbeck
Ice Cream!!! Gorgeous!! Youth Cancer Trust

For 2019, we will continue our support for the Youth Cancer Trust who provides support and free therapeutic breaks all year round at Tracey Ann House in Bournemouth for teenagers and young adults aged 14 to 30 living with cancer from the UK and Ireland. We have supported this charity for over 10 years now and they order and receive regular free supplies from March to September with direct deliveries and monetary donations sent as and when received. There is a friendly, family atmosphere in the house, enabling many young people to restore and re-build confidence, try different activities, make new friends and eat plenty of delicious Purbeck Ice Cream too!
We are continuing to support Diverse Abilities, who offer a range of support to those who have a range of diverse abilities! This is the only charity that supports both children and adults with profound physical and/or learning disabilities as well as their families and carers. They provide a range of assistance through the children’s team, adult services and at Langside School and will continue to enjoy a steady stream of indulgent and nourishing Purbeck Ice Cream to enjoy a well as to raise essential funds in order to maintain their vital services to those in need.

“Our team are happy to make a difference in the local community, giving great enjoyment to indulge in a tub or two to brighten their day whether winning a raffle, whilst in hospital, staying at the Youth Cancer Trust or by those being helped by the team at Diverse Abilities.”
We are also continuing to support Forest Holme Hospice for 2019, who 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.

We continue to make and supply the Bournemouth and Yeovil Hospitals’ poorly patients with patient care tubs and have provided at just above cost price, a massive 170,000 hospital tubs. Purbeck Ice Cream is most welcome as it is easily eaten and digested, cool and palatable and very often, the only thing that can be eaten and enjoyed.

And here are some of the other charities that we have supported in some way in 2019 and so far this year…in the first 6 months of this year we have given over £7000 away!
