Ayrshire Hospice is taking part in Scotland’s Big Summer Sizzle - the Hospices Together fundraising campaign.

Newspaper columnist and broadcaster Tam Cowan donned his chef’s whites at a barbecue last week to launch the campaign to help hospices across Scotland.

Tam is encouraging everyone to reach for the ketchup and mustard and host a barbecue to raise funds for hospices across Scotland

“I am absolutely thrilled to support The Big Summer Sizzle,” said Tam. “There’s nothing better than filling your face with a burger or three, so what a great way to raise money for your local hospice.”

Scotland’s Hospices Together is a national partnership between ten of Scotland’s independent hospices, working together to highlight the work of local hospice care across Scotland. As part of its remit, Scotland’s Hospices Together co-ordinates joint fundraising campaigns to benefit all participating hospices.

John Brady, chair of Scotland’s Hospices Together, explained: “We are delighted The Big Summer Sizzle has returned for 2018. We hope as many people as possible across Scotland to get together with friends, family or colleagues and host a barbeque to support their local hospice.

“These hospices provide end-of-life care and support to patients and their families and are reliant on donations and voluntary support to continue providing that care.”
