On a sunny afternoon last week, we were very pleased to help support St Michael’s Hospice by hosting our third big tea raising funds for our local Hospice.

Big Tea for Hospice 1We were lucky enough to be inundated with bunting and spent the whole morning decorating the house and gardens. A variety of local businesses offered their assistance with our event, which helped make it so successful. Apart from tea and home-made cake, our visitors enjoyed freshly picked local strawberries and cream, Prosecco and locally brewed beer and cider.

The new mayor of Hereford, Sharon Michael, joined us in support of the Hospice and it gave her the opportunity to meet representatives of local businesses.

Big Tea for Hospice 2To add to the funds raised, we held a raffle with prizes ranging from a Denby dinner set, various bottles of alcohol to a cuddly Teletubbie!

At the time of writing, donations are still coming in and we hope that the amount raised will be over £200.00.

St Michael’s Hospice is an independent charity, and all their services are free of charge. It costs over £13,000 per day to provide patients with all the care they need and 90% of that amount is raised by the local Herefordshire community.
