As part of the ‘Hospiscare Coffee Morning’ campaign, the team of Exeter- based Glen King PR welcomed clients, associates, as well as family and friends to a special ‘Tea at 3’ event, with popular broadcaster, Judi Spiers and her famous sidekick Gus Honeybun, raising £200 for Exeter’s Hospiscare.
A tempting array of delicious homemade cakes were available at the Glen King PR city-centre based office at Hampton House, for a recommended donation of £5, which automatically entered guests into a charity prize draw. Fabulous prizes were generously donated by local businesses; including: Trugs, Lloyd’s Kitchen, Gerry Cottle Circus, Purity Spa, expert bakers ‘Little Bear Bakes Cakes’ and Exeter Chief, and the event raised over £200 for this very worthy local cause. The annual costs amount to over £6 million, of which Hospiscare need to raise £5million from voluntary donations – that’s over £13,000 per day!
Glen King – Director Glen King PR said: “We were delighted with the support from the local business community and the GKPR team, and many others turned their hands to baking for this event. As a result, there were a number of cakes left over, but they didn’t go to waste; the surplus were cakes were delivered to St. David’s Church ‘soup kitchen’ and also the YMCA – who would have thought that three very worthy local charities would benefit just from putting the kettle on!”
