Make your bid for a walk on part on Doc Martin!

12th September 2021


Fundraising News

The annual Weldmar Summer Fete usually takes place in September, and one of the highlights is the regular visit from actor Martin Clunes.

The TV star will make his way around the stalls in the meadow and pose for countless photographs. He’ll also make sure he pays a visit to every patient currently staying at our Inpatient Unit.

Martin also donates a walk-on part on his popular ITV show, Doc Martin, as one of our Silent Auction lots.

Sadly, we recently had to take the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Summer Fete due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However Martin has been very generous and ensured that we can still run the auction to raise funds, with some additional treats thrown in!

There will also be two opportunities to secure the experience – one for an individual, and one for a couple, which are both being auctioned on eBay.

You can make a bid until Sunday 19th September.

Our huge thanks goes to Martin Clunes for donating this wonderful experience for Weldmar Hospicecare supporters. It will enable us to raise vital funds to continue providing specialist end of life care in Dorset.
