Massive mince pies help hospice
PUBLISHED: 08:00 04 December 2010
THE biggest mince pie event ever to take place in the district is hoped to cook-up thousands of pounds for a vital charity.
Weston Hospicecare is holding a Massive Mince Pie day this month and is appealing for everyone to get involved.
All people have to do is bake or buy the traditional Christmas sweet and share them with friends and family in return for a donation to the charity.
Sarah Cummins, fund-raiser, said: “We are hoping that this event will not only raise much needed funds for the hospice but also encourage the whole community to take part as it’s so simple to do.”
The charity is holding its Massive Mince Pie Day on December 15, and Cupcakes, the hospice’s café on Weston’s High Street, will be selling the festive baked goods in return for a donation in the lead up to Christmas.
The charity can supply posters for people who would like to hold events. For more information ring 01934 423960.
