Poole property company helps local cancer charity Move On-wards and upwards.

The team at Move On Sales & Lettings in Branksome is planning a year of fundraising events to support Dorset families suffering financial hardship because of cancer.

The eight-strong Move On team is the latest business to become an official sponsor of The Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF).

Sharon Canning, Founder and MD said: “I feel lucky to have watched the DCCF’s amazing work since it started almost 12 years ago, because my mum is one of its founding supporters.

“In recent years, my staff have joined me in attending some of DCCF’s fun events.

“Now, we want to take our support one step further and arrange some of our own events, starting with an open to all Coffee Morning at the stunning LEVEL 8IGHT The Sky Bar on the top floor of the Hilton Bournemouth on Wednesday March 13.

“The event will run from 10am-12.30, and for just £6 entry you will receive a hot drink and delicious slice of cake. There will also be a raffle and all proceeds will go via DCCF to families here in Dorset who are really struggling because of a cancer diagnosis.”

The DCCF was formed in 2012 by three local nurses and has since raised over £700k for cancer patients.

Sharon continued: “I have met many people who have been helped by the DCCF when they needed it most; People who have been able to go on much needed short breaks with their loved ones; people who would have lost their homes if they hadn’t had help to pay their mortgage, and even people who have been helped to pay for basics like petrol and parking, just to get back and forth from their cancer treatment.

“We are really passionate about helping the DCCF because we know the charity’s trustees and supporters work on a voluntary basis and that all the money, we raise will go straight to local people who really need it,” she continued.

“Most of our team have seen loved ones touched by cancer, and some of us have even lost family and friends to cancer. Like DCCF, our company is firmly grounded in the Dorset community, and we want to do all we can to help this small but vital charity help as many families as possible.”

Move On Sales & Lettings has joined Chez Fred, Steele Raymond LLP, Grandeur Properties, Colten Care, Atlas, South West Vehicle Auctions (SWVA) and Swan Productions Ltd in pledging support for the DCCF throughout 2024.

The charity’s manager, Jannine Loveys, said: “There are many families here in Dorset who are facing the added stress of financial worries, on top of the already unbearable burden of a cancer diagnosis – and this is only getting worse as the cost of living continues to rise.

“Move On Sales & Lettings, along with all our supporters, make a real difference to Dorset families who are going through their darkest days, and we are incredibly grateful for their enthusiasm and support.

“We would love to talk to other companies interested in supporting us in any way they can, from a one-off donation, to sponsoring one of our events, or by choosing us as their charity of the year. Everything people do for us, directly helps a local family.”
