A COOKBOOK featuring recipes from the Bailiwick which is raising money for Les Bourgs Hospice has had to be reprinted.
Last year, Les Bourgs Hospice held a Hospice-tality for our Hospice fundraiser which encouraged islanders to host an event from tea and cake up to dinner parties with guests making a donation to the hospice. Recipes used by islanders during the fundraising initiative were collated into a book, which also features contributions from Les Bourgs Hospice staff and from well-known island personalities such as chef Tony Leck and butcher Jason Hamon.
The A5 book contains 65 recipes from starters and snacks through to desserts and cakes costs £5.50 with all the money going to Les Bourgs Hospice.
‘Each year, Les Bourgs Hospice needs to raise £800,000 to cover the running costs of the many services we provide. All of that is raised through the amazing generosity of the people of Guernsey and so we are always looking at new ways in which we can achieve our target,’ said fundraising administrator Trish De Carteret.
‘We are delighted with how quickly the books have sold as, thanks to the sponsors, all of the money goes to the hospice. There are some lovely recipes in there and it’s the perfect gift.’
The cookbooks are available from the Hospice shops in Mont Arrive and on the Bridge, from the Hospice reception and on the Les Bourgs Hospice website. They are also for sale at Half Moon Café, The Pavilion, Iceland, St Peter’s Cobo and L’Islet Food Halls, Checkers Express outlets, the Bridge and Capelles Shopper and Heritage Guernsey.
