Weldmar Fete 2014

Save the date! Weldmar’s Summer Fete WILL return this September

7th May 2022

Fundraising News

Weldmar’s popular Summer Fete will return on Saturday, 10th September, after being cancelled for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Summer Fete began in 1996 and in previous years had survived both an arson attack on donations and severe flooding of the meadow at the Inpatient Unit, but Covid-19 meant it was not safe to run in 2020 and 2021.

The ever popular Nurses’ Stall will be returning, where our IPU and community nursing teams will be raffling hampers to raise money, and we will also have our Silent Auction. Find out how you can help with these below!

We will also be bringing back our outside Memory Tree, which was a new addition at the last Summer Fete in 2019, and we will also have another Silent Auction.

New for our 2022 Summer Fete will be a visit from animals from The Ranch Weymouth, and the Forest School will be joining us too.

How you can help

Our brilliant team of nurses will be raffling hampers on their stall, and they are on the lookout for goodies to fill them up!  If you would like to donate a small item, such as vouchers, pampering gifts, chocolates, or a bottle of wine, please contact Emma Mills, Senior SisterPlease do not drop off items to our Inpatient Unit!

We will also be holding our traditional Silent Auction.  Perhaps you could donate something which is unique, special or collectable? If you are involved in a local business, could you create a ‘money can’t buy’ package for us to include in the Silent Auction?  Please contact Clare in our Fundraising Team if you would like to offer something.  Again, please do not drop off any items to us!

Watch this space for more details about our Summer Fete 2022, and we hope to see you there – put the date in your diary!

We are delighted that the 2022 Weldmar Summer Fete is supported by HSBC Bournemouth and West Dorset.
