(UK) – Saxby Lighting has donated more than £6,000 of lighting free of charge to Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.

The Lewis-Manning Hospice Care helps people in Poole and East Dorset with life limiting illnesses. Its aim is to increase physical and social wellbeing, reduce isolation and loneliness, support people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviate the huge pressures on family and carers.

Sam Gilbert, Area Sales Manager for Saxby Lighting covering the South West region, said: “We want to help people in our community and when we were contacted asking for help by Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, we were delighted to help this incredible charity.

“We supply fittings which are ideal for an array of areas, both exterior and interior, suitable for the home, office or warehouse, so we knew we could help the Dorset charity with their refurbishment.”

Clare Gallie, CEO of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, added: “I would like to thank Saxby Lighting for this wonderful and generous gesture. So many businesses are getting involved with our refurbishment project and donating materials or assisting us in some way and we are grateful to every single one.

“Creating a light, pleasant, welcoming environment for our charity headquarters will benefit staff, our volunteers and those attending the sessions which are part of our vital support services.”
