Our Charities

I am pleased to seek your support for the three charities that I will be linked with particularly during the Mayoral year. All three charities are associated with helping people when they are at their most vulnerable.

The Rowans Hospice - Situated at the south eastern end of the District, the Rowans supports people with life-limiting illnesses and their carers. Specialist support is offered wherever it is needed; either at the Hospice, at home or within the local community. A new drop-in centre, LIVING WELL, provides information, support, therapies and group activities for anyone living with a life-limiting illness. Quality care is delivered with compassion. A wonderful place.

Hampshire and IOW Air Ambulance - The HIOWAA began life in 2007 since when it has saved thousands of lives. It brings an advanced critical care team to people when they need it most, offering efficient prompt response to road traffic collisions or severe sporting injuries. It is available night and day 365 days a year. It is solely funded through donations from individuals and charities such as ours.

The Defence Medical Welfare Service (DMWS) supports the well-being and morale of our Armed Forces and "blue light" services providing emotional and practical welfare support. Celebrating 75 years of "Caring for those who serve" the charity has supported over 1 million members of the Armed Forces community, the police and emergency services and continues to assist those that serve today as they have since 1943.
