Dougie Mac are delighted to announce the amalgamation of local children’s hospice Donna Louise Children’s Trust into Douglas Macmillan Hospice; after initial plans were announced in March 2020.

Organiser and founder of the Weston Christmas Light Display, Graham Witter BEM, has announced that his Starlit Garden drive-thru event has raised a whopping total of £25,450 for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

As part of the plans to merge The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice and Douglas Macmillan Hospice (Dougie Mac), The Donna Louise Lottery will also be taken over by the Dougie Mac.

The Donna Louise Annual Ball

As with many mass events this year, we’ve had to take the difficult decision to cancel The Donna Louise Annual Ball which was due to take place on Friday 4th December at Spode China Halls.

Weston Christmas Light Display

With social distancing measures currently in place, sadly the annual Weston Christmas Light Display, which has become a festive highlight for families across the local community, will not be able to go ahead in its usual format this December.

The Donna Louise 10k

Like many mass events this year, we’ve had to take the difficult decision to once again postpone the 10k & 5k Family Fun Run which was due to take place at Trentham Gardens on Sunday 18th October.

The team at the Donna Louise understand how challenging the past few months have been for all the children and families that we care for and support. As we slowly return to some normality we need to understand how we can best care for you and your family in the next 6 -12 months. Please help us to help you by telling us how your care and support needs may have changed and how the team at the Donna Louise could help. Thank you!
