Charity fundraiser at the Kings Arms

HUNDREDS of pounds was raised for the Allison Campbell Trust (ACT) at the Kings Arms, Wareham, on a rugby Six Nations Super Saturday.

The pub made a donation for every bowl of chilli sold, a competition was held to guess the first try scorer and a raffle with prizes ranging from a tonne of firewood to a jar of bath salts helped raise £500.

Organisers would like to thank everyone who contributed any of the 40 raffle prizes and to those who bought tickets.

ACT works solely in the Purbeck area and aims to support district nursing teams caring for end-of-life patients who choose to die in their own homes.

It provides a range of items the NHS cannot fund which make a difference to patient comfort and quality of life.

ACT is entirely run by volunteers, so every penny donated goes to those who need help.
