Christmas can be a very special time for sharing memories and thinking of those close to us. Weldmar Hospicecare invites you to join in remembering loved ones and absent friends at our Light up a Life service at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.

Christmas is one of those special times when we remember those who are dear to us but who have sadly died. Our Light up a Life Services provide you and your family with the opportunity to reflect and remember someone special. This year we have seven Trees, each of which will be illuminated with hundreds of tiny white lights, each light representing treasured memories – learn more about all of the services on the Light up a Life web page: www.weld-hospice.org.uk/lightupalife

Sail lais - Sailing for the recovery of the mentally ill


I have Bipolar Disorder and have had numerous hospital admissions due to this. I found (off my own back) that a sense of adventure such as watersport really aided my recovery particularly with confidence and anxiety. The mental health resource teams do not have the people or skills to organise this and I hope to be able to complete my training (I have already spent half of this out of my own pocket) as a dinghy instructor and teach people to sail for free to boost confidence and give them something they deserve, however training is expensive and so is hiring of resources, thankfully some charities have offered to support and lend their facilities. All would be much appreciated towards helping other regain and learn something new.

This is designed for all. People who suffer from personality disorders, self-harm, suicidal tendencies, mood difficulties, psychosis, depression - all sorts - EVERYONE is accepted and will be welcomed.
PLEASE DONATE! much appreciated
