BOURNEMOUTH’S Marsham Court Hotel will play Santa to a couple facing cancer this Christmas, gifting them for a four-night, full board, festive package, with all the trimmings.

The award-winning hotel in Russell-Cotes Road has joined a host of local businesses which have responded to Dorset Cancer Care Foundation’s (DCCF) Secret Santa appeal.

The appeal, which launched this month, asked for help to ensure local people going through cancer treatment enjoy festive treats this Christmas.

The Marsham Court’s managing director Rosie Wallace made a cash donation to the appeal as well as offering the special festive break from 23-27 December, which has been given to Paul Ellis and his wife Gillian.

Mr Ellis, 65, from the New Forest, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June and is halfway through a course of chemotherapy at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital’s Jigsaw unit.

He said: “Rosie’s offer has been a complete bolt out of the blue, but an absolutely wonderful one.

“My diagnosis knocked us both for six and the last few months have been very tough, especially for Gill as she cares for me.

“The treatment and support we are receiving from the Jigsaw unit has been outstanding though and to receive this lovely treat, the chance to rest and relax and be really spoiled, will be fabulous for us both.” Bournemouth Echo
