Fireworks River Cruise

You are invited on a summer river cruise to Wareham on Thursday 28th July courtesy of Greenslade Pleasure Boats, which will culminate with the firework display on Poole Quay. And proceeds go to a great local cause.

Leaving Poole Quay at 6.45pm, the Purbeck Gem boat will take passengers on a leisurely cruise to Wareham stopping off at Wareham Quay for a delicious Hog Roast prepared by the outstanding chefs at The Salt Pig, with an opportunity to have a tipple either on board or at one of the local pubs.

After some food and refreshments, the cruise will return back to Poole Harbour in time for all on board to enjoy a prime position watching the fireworks on Poole Quay.

Sally Goodenough, Events Fundraiser, at Lewis-Manning Hospice, said, “We are once again very grateful to Greenslade for providing the boat and also to The Salt Pig, who have very kindly offered to do a Hog Roast, although there will also be a vegetarian option. With a cash bar on board and a chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful Dorset scenery, not to mention a brilliant uninterrupted view of the fireworks, what better way to spend a summer's evening?.”

Tickets are £20 pp, which includes the Hog Roast (vegetarian option available on request only) and they can be booked by calling Fundraising on 01202 708470 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

All money raised will be used by the hospice to support local people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
