What is the best way to invite people to join me for a Coffee Morning?

Word of mouth is great, display posters, call, email or text an invite to all of your friends. Perhaps set up a Facebook event to let people know what your doing, how and when they can get involved and donate. Ask your friends to help bake or make.

How do I pay my money in?

Once you register you will receive all the information you need to make your donation.

If you’re fundraising online JustGiving (or other platforms) will automatically send us the money you’ve raised. If you’d like to pay in what you’ve raised offline head to www.hospiscare.co.uk/donate and select ‘I have taken part in a sponsored event’ and write Coffee Morning 2023 in the box.

If you’d rather send us a cheque, please make it payable to Hospiscare and send it to Hospiscare, Searle House, Dryden Road, Exeter, EX2 5JJ. You can transfer your donations to us by BACS, just call 01392 688020 for the bank details.

Natasha’s Law

  • Members of the public are not subject to the food standards regulations or Natasha’s law (even if products were to be wrapped in cling film etc).
  • Where a school or organisation is “hosting” the coffee morning and inviting the public to donate goods, again they would not be subject to this regulation.
  • If a school or organisation is a registered food business and supplies their own products they would be subject to the regulation (as for any products they produce).

It is considered best practice to list allergens where possible, but as above not a legal requirement for the public.

For more information please visit the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.

Thank you!
