Local poets and spoken word groups in West Dorset are joining together to raise funds for the Dorset County Hospital cancer treatment unit due to open next summer, a new facility that will improve the lives of cancer outpatients who are receiving radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments. These improved facilities mean that patients can sit with their family for the many hours and days of their treatment. This fundraiser is called Muse of Fire, and will be a special evening of spoken word and music from internationally acclaimed performers. Details to follow. Supported by Dorset Writers Network, Black Ven Poetry, Apothecary. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and tickets.
