Put the kettle on for the Hospiscare Coffee Morning
Posted on June 21st 2017
The Hospiscare Coffee Morning 2017 is on its way, and popular local celebrity Judi Spiers is once again supporting the local charity, joining coffee and cake lovers in Exeter, Mid and East Devon throughout September.
Hospiscare Coffee Mornings are being held by supporters in their homes and village halls, even in local parks if the weather is fine. Plenty of businesses are also getting involved, with employees bringing cakes to work and holding competitions in staff canteens. All donations raised will enable local patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families to be supported and cared for by Hospiscare’s specialist medical teams.
Can you get your friends, family, or work colleagues together for a chat over coffee and to raise funds? The Hospiscare Fundraising Team have plenty of inspirational ideas for you to start the donations rolling in. Call them to get your Coffee Morning Pack today on 01392 688020.

Judi & Gus set off on a September coffee and cake tour
Posted on September 13th 2017
Local radio and TV personality Judi Spiers has set off with her long term pal Gus Honeybun to visit as many coffee mornings as they can in September.
Supported by Mercedes Benz of Exeter, who are sponsoring the campaign and who have kindly lent Judi a Cabriolet in which she can zip about the lanes of Devon, the pair will be visiting workplaces, homes and village halls to enjoy some home baking, strong coffee and to give thanks to the lovely people in our community who are raising money for local hospice charity, Hospiscare.
Judi Spiers said: “Hospiscare is a charity close to my heart. I would like people to see that hospices are not places to be feared. At difficult times of life they offer warmth, comfort and support. I always like to say that hospices allow people to not only die, but to live with dignity.”
It’s not too late if you would like Judi & Gus to visit to your coffee morning, but you need to call today so we can try to squeeze in a visit. To get your pack call Becky or Alice on 01392 688020, email firstname.lastname@example.org or download a pack at www.putthekettleon.org.uk
