Ashgate Hospicecare’s Care for a Cuppa returns for second year running this February

Ashgate Hospicecare is thrilled to announce that last year’s successful Care for a Cuppa fundraising campaign will return for a second year running.

The campaign, which raised over £20,000 last year by asking the people of North Derbyshire to host their own ‘Care for a Cuppa’ event throughout February, will start proceedings this Friday (19th January) with a special launch event held at the offices of our sponsor, Penk Insurance!

Christine Selden, Community Fundraising Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare, said “The success of Care for a Cuppa last year was fantastic. We hope that even more people will get involved this year as it is such a fun way to get people together and raise money for a great, local charity.”

Whether you organise a Coffee Morning with cakes or an Afternoon Tea with sandwiches and scones, your event will help to make a real difference to patients in the North Derbyshire area who are living with a life-limiting illness. You can hold your event anywhere; at home with friends and family, at work, at school or in a local community centre.

The money raised from Care for a Cuppa goes directly to patient care. Without the support from our supporters, we simply wouldn’t be able to help those who need it the most.

Wendy Randall, from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire, said, “I can only say that until you need the help and care from a special organisation as Ashgate Hospicecare, you don’t understand what they do. The whole experience of their care and support is so comforting to everyone that enters through the door. Each and every member of staff is truly an Angel in disguise. Thank you Ashgate from the bottom of my heart.”
