A local charity is looking forward to a summer’s day celebrating with sweet treats and a nice cup of tea to help raise vital funds to continue caring.
The Buttercup Club toddler activity group in Scout Hall, Ellensbrook Close, Leigh-on-sea tel 01702 712150
will be holding a Bake, Cake and Celebrate morning at their messy play activity group. At the weekly sessions on Wed 9th and Thurs 10th June the little ones will be enjoying decorating cakes. Mums and Dads can bring in cakes which will then be sold and all the proceeds go to Little Havens. So tea time will be extra yummy!
This campaign will see people across Essex fundraising to celebrate the work of the hospice in the local community. The charity is asking more people to get involved and indulge in some baked delights and a brew with family, friends, work colleagues and class mates.
The celebration is open to all and is lots of fun, especially when cake is the order of the day. Supporters in the workplace, at clubs and schools or at home could make cakes and cookies and offer a brew in return for a donation, have a “bake-off” to prove who really is the best chef or go all out and host a tea party!
Little Havens, Angela Clements says:
“We’re hoping that hundreds of people across Essex will join us in raising awareness of the care that the charity provides to children and adults with life threatening conditions and their families, by joining with friends and taking some time out for tea and cake – everyone needs to treat themselves. It’s such an easy way to get involved, so get ready to Brew, Bake and Celebrate!”
Last years cake themed event raised £27.000 for the charity and encouraged new supporters. This year, the team at Little Havens is hoping to raise £40.000.
Little Havens Children’s Hospice provides respite breaks, symptom control and end-of-life care for the youngsters living with serious conditions and who are not expected to reach adulthood. It aims to make their journey – and that of the family – as comfortable as possible, creating memories along the way.
The love and care provided by the Care Team in the homely surroundings at Little Havens is as special and unique as the child. This could not continue without kind donations as it costs £2.3 million each year to keep the hospice open.
