Not-for-profit quality care for over 25 years

Head Chef at Ringwood care home takes part in Jurassic Coastal walk to raise money for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care

Patrick Fensterseifer, Head Chef at Care South’s St Ives House care home, is taking part in a Jurassic Coastal walk to fundraise for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care. All donations will go to the hospice, which provides care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness. Their important work increases people’s physical and social wellbeing, reduces isolation and loneliness and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.

Patrick will be starting his challenge on Thursday 1st July, which will see him walking via the Southwest Coastal Path and Castleman Trailway from Care South’s sister home, Buxton House in Weymouth, back to St Ives House. The route will take him through the great Jurassic Coast including Weymouth Bay, Lulworth, Kimmeridge Bay, Swanage, Old Harry Rocks, Studland Bay, Sandbanks, Holes Bay, Wimborne, Ferndown and onto St Ives House. This walk averages 25km per day and will see Patrick’s return on Sunday 4th July

Patrick, the home’s Head Chef, commented: “I am absolutely delighted to take part in this challenge for such a fantastic cause. The help and care that Lewis-Manning provide is second to none and I want to give something back to the community. Any donations that people can provide, no matter how big or small, is appreciated. There is a JustGiving page where you can make your donation.”

The JustGiving page is accepting pledges of support which can be found here: Patrick Fensterseifer is fundraising for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care (
