The Saint Francis Hospice Cuppa for Care

Time to flick the kettle on, hang up the bunting, and gather together for a cuppa for care. Whether you host a coffee morning, an afternoon tea, or a bake sale, you can support local people. The average coffee morning raises £400, which could pay for a physiotherapy session for one of our patients.


If you are hosting an event in memory of a loved one, to celebrate a birthday, or simply to spend some time with friends; there is never a wrong time to hold a Cuppa for Care. Here are our top tips for planning your event:


Hosting tips

  • Set up a time, date and location. (Make sure you choose somewhere with lots of space to socially distance).
  • Get your invitations out! Whether it’s your friends, family, club or community — let everyone know about your event.
  • You could host a raffle, auction, or bake-off competition to raise those vital funds.
  • Head to one of our charity retail stores. We have some tea cups and tea towels that would be perfect for your event.

Going virtual hosting tips

  • Choose your media: there are lots of great apps (e.g. Zoom, Skype and Microsoft teams) that you can use to take your coffee morning online.
  • Send out e-vites: use emails, text messages, or social media to safely get the word out.
  • A social media ‘rate the bake’, online raffles, or hosting a virtual quiz could be fun ways to raise money at your virtual coffee morning.
