The Dorset Wine Company is delighted to support 3 local charities and the vital fundraising that they do. Below are details of the charities and how we work with them to help raise vital funds.
Julia’s House is Dorset’s hospice dedicated to children with life-limiting conditions. The majority of the children that it cares for are unlikely to live into adulthood (defined as beyond the age of 18). The children’s hospice complements the work of the Julia’s House Community Team, which consists of nurses and carers who travel the county, providing life-changing support for families in their own homes. In 2008, the charity provided more than 8,300 hours of care for Dorset’s children.
It will cost nearly £2.6m to run Julia’s House in 2010, yet the charity receives just three per cent of its total annual funding from the government. The rest of the charity’s essential income is raised through the generosity of the Dorset community, corporate partners and charitable foundations. For more information about Julia’s House, please contact 01202 607 400 or visit www.juliashouse.org
The Dorset Wine Company run the Julia’s House Wine Club, offering two mixed cases of wine on a quarterly basis. 10% of the purchase price for each case of wine goes directly to the charity to help them continue their vital work.
