Support your local hospice with Rowcroft's most delicious fundraising campaign

02 May 2017

Rowcroft Hospice is inviting people across South Devon to take part in its most delicious fundraising campaign of the year, The Big Bake.

During the month of June, South Devon’s local hospice is inviting lovers of tea, cake and all things baked to hold their own coffee mornings or bake sales and donate the funds raised to the hospice.

All the money raised will help to support local people and families who are living with life-limiting illnesses.

Community Fundraising Manager at Rowcroft, Hayley Norrish, explained: “Organising a Big Bake coffee morning or cake sale is the perfect way to get together with friends, family and colleagues, have fun and raise money for people in your community who need your help.

“Simply invite your friends over for a nice cuppa and a delicious slice of cake and donate the funds you raise to Rowcroft - it couldn’t be easier or tastier to take part!”

Every pound raised by the campaign will make a huge difference to Rowcroft, helping Rowcroft patients, and their families, to share precious time together.

Carolyn’s husband, David, was cared for by Rowcroft’s Hospice at Home team, she explained: “David was admitted to Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit for a week of symptom and medication control. I vividly remember being welcomed by the nurses who were like angels to us.

“A week later our home had been transformed into a comfortable, but well equipped, mini ward by Rowcroft’s Hospice at Home team. The entire family, including new grandson, moved in to spend our last few days together. Because of the wonderful support of Rowcroft Hospice we have so many special memories made through extra days lived so well.”

By taking part in Rowcroft’s Big Bake, you’ll be helping more families like Carolyn’s to spend precious time with their loved ones during the hardest days imaginable.

Community Fundraising Manager for Rowcroft Hospice, Hayley Norrish, added: “You can organise your Big Bake coffee morning any way and anywhere you like. Whether it’s at home, work, school or at the village hall you’ll be making an amazing difference to local families by taking part!

“We are here to support you with everything you need to make it a flan-tastic event, including cake flags, icing toppers and an exclusively-designed Big Bake table cloth.

“As you may be aware Rowcroft suffered a drastic funding shortfall in 2016 so every pound you raise by taking part in this year’s scrumptious Big Bake campaign will make a huge difference - now more than ever.”
