A special 30th anniversary edition of the Weldmar Magazine is out now!
2nd February 2024< BACK TO NEWS
The latest edition of the biannual Weldmar Magazine has just been released, and is themed around our 30th anniversary celebrations.
The front cover features thirty colleagues from across all Weldmar departments, ranging from the Inpatient Unit to retail to fundraising to Weldmar at Home, as well as a photo of some of the nursing staff stood in exactly the same spot thirty years before.
As well as a nostalgic look back at the last thirty years, there is also a focus on how Weldmar is supporting people in Dorset today. Jacqui, a patient in our care, and Wilda, whose husband we cared for before he passed away last April, both attend our Wellbeing Support Sessions and have shared their stories of how Weldmar has made a difference in their journeys in dealing with a life limiting illness.
There’s a chance to get to know our team a little better with ‘A Day In The Life’ following Sherborne based Weldmar Community Nurse Emma Randall, and Michelle Trafford, manager of our Portland charity shop, answers the questions in ‘Five Minutes With…’.
We meet Marie, a fundraiser and volunteer, and also find out more about the impact of volunteers and our charity shops over the thirty years we’ve been providing care.
We also look ahead to the future, and discover why the support of the local community is more important now than ever.
Copies have landed on the doormats of supporters this week, and the new edition will soon be available to pick up for free from any Weldmar Hospicecare shop, or wherever you see our Community Outreach Vehicle in Dorset. Alternatively, you can download a copy below.
