St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is encouraging the local community to get together for tea and cake throughout October for their ‘It’s a piece of cake’ fundraiser.
The annual campaign encourages supporters to host their own cake related events and raise money in aid of hospice care. Last year saw supporters host tea parties; bake-offs and cake sales at their home, school and work.
For the second consecutive year Lincolnshire born celebrity Chef, Rachel Green, is supporting ‘It’s a piece of cake’.
Rachel said: “I am delighted to be a St Barnabas Hospice Ambassador and to offer my support to the ‘It’s a Piece of Cake’ fundraiser. The Louth Branch specifically has been hugely supportive to me and my family whilst caring and nursing our loved ones.
“We have lost two close family members recently and St Barnabas have continued to offer unconditional care in supporting us through our sadness and grief.”
This year St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice must raise £3.8 million in order to maintain their care and services throughout Lincolnshire. The money raised from ‘It’s a piece of cake’ will help more than 8,000 people across county receive the specialist end of life care they deserve.
Veronica Brien, Head of Marketing and Fundraising for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:
“There are so many ways for people to get involved with ‘It’s a piece of cake’ and it’s the perfect excuse for people to get together and raise money for hospice care. The support from this event ensures that our patients and their families can make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains.”
