Charity - 1980s 

The 1980s 

The 1980s was a decade of growth. We took part in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch carnivals, helping to improve public awareness of our service.

By 1986, we had outgrown the attic room and, with the help of an interest-free loan of £60,000 from the East Dorset Health Authority, decided to have new studios built at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

Such an undertaking couldn't be taken lightly and the second-half of the decade involved a lot of fund raising to help us raise money for the project.

A large raffle was organised to raise even more money for the new studio complex. The 1st prize, a yellow Mini, was won by a couple from Boscombe.

The move to RBH took place in 1990 and the association raised funds to pay back the loan, which was achieved thanks to the generosity of many organisations.
