Pop the kettle on and bring out the chocolate cake! February is Care for a Cuppa time!

It’s that time of the year again. Hundreds of supporters across North Derbyshire will be rallying their family and friends together and hosting their very own Care for a Cuppa event in aid of Ashgate Hospicecare.

The event, which is now in its third year, raised an amazing total of over £41,000 for the local Hospice in 2017 and 2018. With your help this year, you can ensure that people with a life-limiting illness and their families can receive the support they need when it matters the most.

Jane Randoll, from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire, said, “I can’t wait to hold our Care for a Cuppa event at the end of the month and try and help Ashgate as much as possible. I can only say that until you need the help and specialist care from an organisation like Ashgate Hospicecare, you don’t understand what they do. The whole experience of their care and support is so comforting to everyone who enters through the door. I’d like to thank Ashgate from the bottom of my heart.”

Sarah Green, Community Fundraiser at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “The success of Care for a Cuppa over the last two years has been 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 your local hospice.
Not only that, throwing a Care for a Cuppa event is a great way to entertain friends and family, with the knowledge that you are making a real difference to the lives of thousands of people who need our care across North Derbyshire.”

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.
