This February, Ashgate Hospicecare is asking everyone in North Derbyshire to show their support by holding a ‘Care for a Cuppa’ event.
Last year, over £20,000 was raised from Care for a Cuppa events! This was enough to pay for hospital bed frames and mobile recliner chairs for nine patients to enable them to be cared for in their own homes.
Sadly, one in four people who need hospice care do not receive it, but with your help, we can achieve our ambition to be there for everyone who needs us.
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.
You can register your Care for a Cuppa event with our fundraising team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01246 233404.

A huge thank you to Penk Insurance for sponsoring this event.
P.S. Fancy a cuppa? Then do pop along to Ashgate Hospicecare’s very own #careforacuppa event! We’ll be serving tea and cakes from 10am til 2pm on Thursday 15th February. Our pop up café will be held at Steeplegate, Vicar Lane, S40 1PQ (previously The Works shop next to Burger King). It’s the perfect opportunity to chat to our Fundraising Team to get lots of ideas or help with your own Care for a Cuppa event this February… or just to have a cheeky slice of cake! We hope to see lots of you there.
