Hello Awesome Bakers!
Hospice Awareness Week is coming up in May which means lots of great events to help raise awareness of the amazing work the Hospices do.
In preparation for this, and because we have such amazing bakers on the team, the lovely folks at the North Shore Hospice and Mercy Hospice have asked for our baking help! There are 3 events coming up (more details below) please let us know if you are able to help with one or even more.
1. North Shore Hospice Peace and Plenty Open Home Thursday 21 May
Once again, the Victorian B&B in Devonport is opening its doors to the public. People purchase tickets to visit the beautifully decorated interior, wonder through the beautiful gardens and stop and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere with a morning or afternoon tea. All money raised is donated back to the North Shore Hospice.
North Shore Hospice helps out with the morning and afternoon teas. Would some of our wonderful Baking for Hospice team might be interested in helping with the morning & afternoon tea?? The Hospice are looking for slices and cakes that can be served with a cup of tea and coffee. If anyone is interested in helping out, please give the lovely Carol a call on 09 486 1688 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk about timing, etc – or you could drop something off the day before (20th May).

2. Mercy Hospice Morning Tea Thursday 21 May (same day as Peace and Plenty)
On the very same day Mercy Hospice is hosting a morning tea for their team of wonderful donors, to thank them for their valuable support. The time and date is 10am to 12noon on Thursday 21 May 2015.
Mercy would really appreciate some help of our baking talent! In particular, a mix of sweet and savoury, ie sandwiches would be great and small enough to each without a cake fork. There will likely be at least 60 people.

When: Thursday 21 May 10am-12noon
Where: Mercy Hospice, 61 College Hill Freeman’s Bay
Help needed: Cakes, slices and sandwiches for morning tea

3. Hospice Cuppa – April, May andJune
The Hospice Cuppa campaign is up and running again from April, May to June!
Have a think about hosting your own Hospice Cuppa event! It’s a great excuse to get your friends and family or your work colleagues together and raise funds for Hospice. Sign up as a Hospice Cuppa host and we will provide the tea, coffee, some recipe ideas and other helpful bits to help you with your morning or afternoon tea. In recognition of the wonderful morning or afternoon tea, guests make a donation to Hospice North Shore.
