A tasty idea to support The Norfolk Hospice next month
A Taste of Home campaign has been launched by the Norfolk Hospice with a coffee morning planned for Downham Town Hall in March.
The campaign invites members of the local community to hold their own Taste of Home events during March to raise funds for the hospice.
Downham Town Hall will host the Taste of Home coffee morning on Friday, March 8 from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Local craft stalls, a tombola and raffle will all be part of the coffee morning.
The opportunity will also be granted to find out more about the care provided by the hospice and ways you can offer support yourself.
Alice Crome, fundraising coordinator at the Norfolk Hospice, said: “Bring your family and friends to our coffee morning at Downham Market Town Hall and reminisce over a slice of cake and a cup of tea or coffee.”
Taste of Home is a simple idea which anyone can get involved with.
It can be as easy as inviting friends and family round for dinner which evokes a memory. In turn, this memory and meal can be accompanied by a donation to the hospice.
Lyndsay Carter, chief executive at the Norfolk Hospice, in Hillington, said: “Food comes attached to precious memories. Sharing that food with family and friends is sharing those memories.
“We are encouraging the local community to bake, cook or even get a takeaway to to share with friends, family or colleagues and raise money for The Norfolk Hospice during March.”
