The campaign invites the local community to hold their own Taste of Home events during March to raise funds for their local Hospice.  Taste of Home is a simple event which anyone can take part in. All you need to do is invite family and friends round for a dinner which evokes a memory, share your meal and story in exchange for a donation to help open up hospice care to everyone who needs it, wherever they are.

Lyndsay Carter, Chief Executive at The Norfolk Hospice said,

Food comes attached to precious memories. Sharing that food with family and friends is sharing those memories. We are encouraging the local community to bake, cook or even get a takeaway to share with friends, family or colleagues and raise money for The Norfolk Hospice during March.    

The Hospice will also be holding their own Taste of Home Coffee Morning in Downham Market Town Hall on Friday 8th March between 9.30am and 12.30pm. They are inviting the public to attend and to share their Taste of Home memories. There will also be local craft stalls, a tombola, and raffle as well as the opportunity to find out more about the care the Hospice provides in the community and ways you can help support our work.

Bring your family and friends to our Coffee Morning at Downham Market Town Hall and reminisce over a slice of cake and a cup of tea or coffee.
