A word from the newest Great British Bake Off judge, Prue Leith:

We're delighted to have Prue Leith, the newest judge for The Great British Bake-Off supporting our Care for a Cuppa campaign, and share with you her supportive words below:


Prue Leith

“For twenty five years Katharine House has provided professional but friendly and warm palliative care, along with a lot of sympathy, comfort and, yes, fun for the patient; plus help and understanding for families. The hospice charges nothing.

‘Care for a Cuppa’ is the newest Katharine House initiative and it has been going like a bomb since 2014. This year it will run from 8 – 14 May with events large and small in homes, clubs and societies, village and town halls, and in many local businesses. Most people opt for an afternoon tea or coffee morning, but there are variations such as a ‘Breakfast Bap Cuppa’ or ‘Care for a Cocktail’.

I hope you join in the Cuppa campaign by organising your own event or coming along to the one at the hospice.” 

- Prue Leith, Great British Bake Off judge, restauranteur, cookery writer, and novelist. 


Holding your Care for a Cuppa event:

Our Care for a Cuppa week is back from 8-14 May, and we hope you'll organise an event and get together with friends, family, and colleagues to raise money for Katharine House.

Hold a coffee morning, a traditional afternoon tea, or even a Care for a Cocktail evening and help raise money for people and their families facing life-limiting illnesses in the community.

Please sign up to host an event today and we'll send you everything you need to get started.

You'll also be able to download more posters, bunting, and other materials here shortly, so you can make the most of your event.
