Donate your plate for hospice fundraiser

Diners with an appetite for helping their community can make their meals matter by taking part in a hospice's #DonateYourPlate campaign.

People are being asked to dine in and donate £5 that could help to pay for patient’s meals at St Giles Hospice - and nominate five friends or family members to do the same.

They should post a snap of their meal on social media and tag @StGilesHospice, along with the hashtag #DonateYourPlate, to share their culinary creativity and to spread the word further about the campaign.

Elinor Eustace, director of fundraising at St Giles Hospice, said: “Supporting St Giles couldn’t be simpler with this fun, brand new social media campaign and whether you’ve baked a cake or cooked a steak, we’d love you to donate your plate, send us a snap and make your meals matter for St Giles Hospice.

“With lockdown restrictions now beginning to ease, you could even dine out and donate – celebrating our freedom to go out for a meal again by dedicating your first restaurant plate to us. Or you could forgo your weekly takeaway or a tasty treat and donate the proceeds from that to St Giles instead.

“#DonateYourPlate is a great way to make a real difference to local patients and their families at a time when we’ve had to cancel our regular fundraising events while the demand for our services is increasing. We’ve never needed you more than we need you today.”
