KEMP Hospice Upcoming Fundraising Event
CUPPA for KEMP
Get the kettle on to support hospice care in Spring 2018! Pencil a date in the diary now and get together with friends, family or colleagues to hold a Cuppa for KEMP. It’s a simple and fun way to support your local hospice (what better way to spend some time with friends than with a cheery brew and a biccy or two!).
What you can do…
You could host a huge local tea party, a workplace coffee and cake break, a cream tea for your neighbourhood watch group, a community centre cuppa get-together, a bake & brew sale or maybe a simple ‘tea for two’!
Whatever you decide to do, do it over a brew and raise some money for KEMP, the Wyre Forest’s Hospice.
Your fundraising and support means that we can continue to provide specialist care and support for people with life limiting illnesses, their families and carers as well as providing free bereavement support for everyone in the Wyre Forest area. Your support means the world to us…thank you.
