Knit chicks and bunnies for us to sell at Easter

Small Ways to Help

Small Ways to Help Dove Cottage Day Hospice. Here are some simple ideas for you to help raise funds for us which will make a big difference to Dove Cottage and it’s guests.

Help at one of our events

Could you man a stall for us at one of our fairs? Could you bake a cake/make a salad/pudding for our BBQ? Could you help to set up tables/chairs before an event or help to take them down afterwards. We would be grateful for even just one hour of your time and help.

Bake cakes for us

Could you or a group of your friends bake cakes for us and bring them into the hospice? Our guests are served with afternoon tea and cake before they go home and we are always grateful for donations of home baked goodies.

Knit chicks and bunnies for us to sell at Easter

Can you knit? Could you knit us some chicks and bunnies for us to stuff with chocolate eggs to sell in local outlets at Easter. Demand is always much greater than supply and we are pleased to receive knitted items at any time of year.
