Have a Royally Splendid Time with Heart of Kent Hospice 6 – 9 May 2023

Categories: Fundraising.

Heart of Kent Hospice in Aylesford, Maidstone has produced a special Fundraising Pack to commemorate the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort.  The free fundraising pack is available now to downloaded from the Hospice website.

Whatever you have planned to do over The Coronation Weekend, the fundraising pack is full of some royal fundraising ideas.

Whether you are hosting a tea party or a street party the fundraising pack shows you how to add some royal charm to your celebrations with a bunting decoration template and an easy-to-use template to make your own St Edward’s Crown; it is tradition that King Charles III will wear St Edward’s Crown when he is officially declared as the King during his Coronation.

Why not raise money for the Hospice by baking a cake fit for a King?

You can’t have a royal celebration without cake! You could host a cake sale at work, set up a coffee morning with friends, or hold a bake-off-style competition. Bonus points for the cakes and pastries with the best regal names and decorations.

Collect your funds in a DIY Heart of Kent Hospice collection jar, all you need is an empty clean jam jar, scissors and tape.
