Staff and residents at a Meltham care home are inviting the local community to join them for a charity coffee morning this September to raise funds for Kirkwood Hospice.
Greenacres care home is opening up its Bobbin’s Café on Monday 23rd September for members of the public to come and enjoy fresh cakes, tea and coffee with the home’s residents.
All funds raised will be donated to Kirkwood Hospice, which provides care for local people living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their families and friends, free of charge.
Jessica Skirrow, Lifestyle Manager at Greenacres, said: “Kirkwood Hospice provides an outstanding service to our local community and we are always looking for ways to support them. We know our residents love a good chat over a cuppa so what better way to raise funds for this worthy cause than with a really social event for the whole community, with plenty of delicious cake to enjoy along the way. The event is open to everyone and we’re really looking forward to welcoming our friends and neighbours into our café to raise vital funds for Kirkwood Hospice.”
Julia Owen, Kirkwood Hospice Community Fundraiser, said:“Cuppa for Kirkwood is a really simple fundraising idea and is a great excuse for us all to get together. We’re looking forward to meeting residents, staff and visitors at Greenacres and the event will provide something amazing for people in the local community by helping us to provide vital care for anyone affected by a life limiting illness in Kirklees.”
The event will start at 10am on Monday 23rd September at Bobbin’s Café, Greenacres care home.
