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
“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.”
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!
