A Tasty Partnership for Diverse Abilities

Posted on: 26/02/2018

Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is over the moon to have been chosen as charity of the year by Purbeck Ice Cream for a second year running.

In 2017, Purbeck Ice Cream provided over £3,000 worth of free ice cream to the charity, which has been enjoyed by the children and adults that are supported across its services as well as the care staff. In addition, Purbeck Ice Cream raised over £500 for the charity over the course of the year at its farm in Wareham.

As part of the second-year partnership Diverse Abilities will continue to receive tubs of ice cream across its services for children and adults with disabilities, their siblings and families to enjoy all year through. Staff at the charity will also be able to enjoy the ice cream in exchange for a donation.

Purbeck Ice Cream is the perfect treat for everyone at Diverse Abilities and has more than one type of enjoyment. For those with complex disabilities, who can’t eat orally, it provides a wonderful sensory experience of tasting and smelling different favours and feeling cold in the mouth. For everyone else, it is a real pleasure to be able to try and enjoy different flavours.

Hazel Hartle, from Purbeck Ice Cream, said: “The team at Purbeck are thrilled to be helping Diverse Abilities for a second year to help sustain all throughout the year with our award winning, entirely natural and totally scrumptious Purbeck Ice Cream!”

Fiona Hansford, corporate & community manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “Purbeck Ice Cream have been incredibly generous to us over the last year and we are absolutely delighted that they are continuing their support for another year. We feel very lucky and thank the team at Purbeck Ice Cream for their backing for another year.”
