Care for a Cuppa in memory of Jenny Kenton

25th August 2022

Dozens of people in garden with hedges, wooden decking and blue sky. There is a table full of cakes and baked goods in the foreground with people standing and sitting.

Aimee Furneaux and her family in Branston hosted a Care for a Cuppa fundraiser on Saturday 20th August, raising a whopping £1,230!

Aimee, her sister Faye, and their father Paul hosted the event for dozens of family members and friends, who enjoyed delicious cakes over tea, coffee and soft drinks, and helped raise vital funds for their local Hospice.

The event was in memory of Aimee and Faye’s mother Jenny Kenton, who was a patient at St Barnabas Hospice before her death in March 2022.

Aimee says: “The dignity, respect, love and care they showed mum during her final few days will never be forgotten. The amazing service they provide to the people of Lincolnshire must never be taken for granted and should be supported and protected at all costs.”

Care for a Cuppa is a new campaign by St Barnabas Hospice, which encourages supporters to put the kettle on and host their own coffee morning, to raise vital funds for the charity.

For every pound raised for St Barnabas, 74p goes straight towards delivering, and improving the care and support the charity offers to over 12,000 people every year. The other 26p goes towards generating future income.
