A slice of cash

Rob George 20th Nov, 2020

FESTIVE cakes in the shape of letterboxes, snowmen, houses and more have been donated to help a hospice raise funds for its care.

St Richard’s Hospice received 30 decorated Christmas cakes made by the Wychavon and Stourport branches of the British Sugarcraft Guild.

Each crafted Christmas cake will be auctioned, raffled or sold to raise funds for the Worcestershire charity.

Ann Newton, chairperson of the Wychavon branch of the guild, said: “During these very difficult and challenging times, the members have not been able to meet, but were determined to continue their support of St Richard’s Hospice and the fantastic work it does.

Last year, more than £3,400 was raised from cakes being raffled, sold and auctioned for the hospice.

Ria Simons, a hospice fund-raiser, said: “We look forward to the delivery of these incredible cakes every year. We are always blown away by the guild members’ creativity with cake icing!

“This year has been challenging for everyone, and we are particularly grateful to the guild for supporting us so generously once again.
