Hello from Dorset Spotlight

Dorset Spotlight is a central hub where the local community can share their achievements and fundraising stories; whilst promoting good health and wellbeing.

“There is a well-known phrase, ’love where you live!’ I certainly do. I have been lucky enough to live in Poole, Dorset, for over 20 years. Living in Dorset and being surrounded by the stunning Jurassic Coast makes me feel extremely grateful to have such beautiful places on my doorstep. Dorset also has a great community spirit where people regularly come together and raise money for our amazing local charities.

Dorset Spotlight is a community website advocating good health and wellbeing whilst showcasing the achievements of the local Dorset residents. So, whether you have raised money for charity, won a sporting event, beaten an illness and gone on to do something special, please get in contact and tell us all about it, as we would love to feature you!”

In loving memory of Pauline O’Grady

Pauline was an extraordinary woman, and I was lucky enough to call her my best friend. She had a real zest for life and touched our community with her kind heart and fun nature!

On the 2nd of June 2009, together with friends and family, we took part in a charity tandem skydive raising money for Forest Holme Hospice, where she spent her final weeks. 

On the 19th of September 2010, she sadly lost her battle with bowel cancer. 

This is for you, Pauline! Big love as always, keep shining bright! x
