Fundraisers at a North East hospice proved there was tea for more than two at their Big Brew Up fundraiser.
Each of St Benedict’s Hospice’s charity shops in Sunderland have taken turns to host a different Big Brew Up every day as part of national Hospice Care Week, which celebrates the work of hospices throughout the UK.
Earlier this week, the Mayor of Hetton called in to St Benedict’s Hetton le Hole store for a cuppa – and there were plenty of home made cakes on offer and great raffle prizes.
While at St Benedict’s Hospice itself, resident chef Wayne Forrester was on hand to share recipe ideas as fundraising staff held a Big Brew Up Coffee Morning for volunteers, staff, visitors and patients. There was the opportunity to win some lovely prizes in the raffle and take part in a cake related sweepstake.
Lisa Peverley, community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “The Big Brew Up campaign is a new event for us at St Benedict’s this year and we are sure it will gather more and more support every year.
Our thanks go to everyone who has got involved this year– whether they’re serving tea or baking delicious cakes for us. We see this event as an excellent way to celebrate Hospice Care Week and it gives people the opportunity to raise funds for their own local hospice.”
