Hospices of Hope held its first ever cocktail making event at Bar Trend in Crowborough last Thursday. The event raised £550, which will help support and develop hospice care in South East Europe.
The Kent-based charity’s philosophy is that everyone deserves to live and die with dignity and without pain. Since it was founded, Hospices of Hope has helped more than 40,000 patients suffering from terminal or life-limiting illness in Romania, Serbia, Moldova and Albania.
Caroline from Bar Trend demonstrated her mixology skills by mixing three different cocktails and then guests had the chance to make their own.
Fundraising and Resources Director, Anna Perolls, said:
The evening was a great success. We all had fun making and sampling different cocktails. We raised an amazing £550 which will help us support and develop hospice care in South East Europe. We are very grateful to Bar Trend for hosting this event and to Peter Oliver for being our sponsors.
Hospices of Hope was founded by Graham Perolls who had established the Ellenor Hospice in 1985. In the late 80s he visited a cancer hospital in Romania. He was shocked by the conditions he witnessed and decided to use his expertise gained to make a difference in Romania and surrounding countries.
