AN EVENING of family fun to raise money for Les Bourgs Hospice will be part of the Taste Guernsey Festival at the end of August.
From Friday 30th August until Sunday 1st September, Taste Guernsey is planning a range of food-related activities which will be held in and around a marquee on the Crown Pier. The event, sponsored by ABN AMRO, will be the culmination of a summer-long celebration of local produce and cooking.
On the Saturday night, Taste Guernsey and ABN AMRO have offered the marquee to Les Bourgs Hospice to hold a fundraising event which will celebrate the start of Hospice-tality for our Hospice month.
‘We are incredibly grateful to Taste Guernsey and ABN AMRO for their generosity and are busy planning an evening of fun for all the family which will help us generate much needed funds but also raise the profile of Les Bourgs and our newest fundraising initiative, which takes place during September,’ said fundraising administrator Trish De La Mare.
Entry to the event, which runs from 6pm until 9pm, is free but money will be raised through the sale of food and drink and some of the activities.
‘There will be entertainment for the family including a magician, face painting for the children and food and drink available. We want it to be a relaxed event where parents can come with their children and enjoy some time together as a family,’ said Ms De La Mare.
‘I want to thank everyone who has agreed to donate their services for free but I’m hoping to hear from more groups and refreshment providers who might want to be involved and help one of the island’s most loved charities.’
Information about Les Bourgs Hospice and Hospice-tality for our Hospice, which encourages islanders to eat, drink and socialise in aid of Les Bourgs, will also be available.
Anyone wanting to be involved in the event should contact Trish De La Mare at Les Bourgs Hospice on 210329 or email email@example.com
