Make your cuppa count this sum­mer

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Advertiser Farming -

THIS month saw the of­fi­cial launch of Make A Cuppa Count – Queen­scourt’s lovely sum­mer fundraiser that ev­ery­one can get in­volved with.

To cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion, a unique trans­for­ma­tion oc­curred... the fa­mil­iar sight of a Bates milk float was trans­formed into a fab­u­lous tea party venue for the morn­ing!

Our mas­cot, Quee­nie, was de­lighted to be there with the lovely gents from Bates Dairy.

They en­joyed the sun­shine in beau­ti­ful Birk­dale Vil­lage, with de­li­cious home­made cakes and re­fresh­ments, all on of­fer in re­turn for a do­na­tion to Queen­scourt Hospice.

Bates Dairy are very kindly spon­sor­ing 2017’s Make A Cuppa Count and chose this won­der­ful way to show­case how much fun it can be to take part.

We are sin­cerely grate­ful to have their in­cred­i­ble sup­port.

They are a lo­cal fam­ily busi­ness, sup­port­ing lo­cal dairies and have been a ded­i­cated part of our com­mu­nity for over 75 years, which is a lot of milk for a lot of cup­pas!

Last year, the lovely act of en­joy­ing a cuppa with a tasty treat man­aged to raise an amaz­ing £6,000 for Queen­scourt Hospice.

Sup­port­ers in­cluded a whole va­ri­ety of lo­cal busi­nesses, such as Vic­to­rian Plumb­ing, Wal­nut Sa­lon and Moore & Smal­ley; lo­cal com­mu­nity groups in­clud­ing Brighter Living Part­ner­ship and 13th St. John’s Guides and Brown­ies; plus lots of in­di­vid­u­als hold­ing their own par­ties with friends and fam­ily.

In 2017 we need your help, we would love to see even more peo­ple join in the fun and have a cuppa to help our com­mu­nity.

It’s re­ally easy to get in­volved and, whether it’s just a few friends or a big fundrais­ing day, your Make A Cuppa Count party will make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to the pa­tients and fam­i­lies we care for. So please get in touch and we will hap­pily send you one of our free packs to help get your prepa­ra­tions in full swing.

Your spe­cial pack will in­clude in­vi­ta­tions, stickers, a quiz, plus a beau­ti­ful money box to col­lect all your do­na­tions on the day.

To re­quest yours, or for more in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact Lucy Smith, com­mu­nity fundraiser, on 01704 517420 or lucy.smith50@nhs.net.
