and organi-sations who share this concern, all of whom have an equal voice. Bringing together local environmental initiatives and through a process of collaboration and networking, Planet Wimborne aims to encourage more sustainable lifestyles across Wimborne and the local area.
Together, we seek to positively inspire, educate, campaign and raise awareness of environmental and ecological issues, helping to conserve and protect our planet for generations to come.

The object of the Friends is to “support patients of the hospital and others in the community who are in need of health care as may be provided by the hospital, and generally to support the work of the hospital”.

All our activities support the hospital’s work in the advancement of health and the relief of those in need because of ill-health.  The hospital provides a service of care which is available equally to all members of the local community.   This demonstrates the public benefit of the charity.
