Supporting Hospice at Home

Pioneer Foodstore | Go Orange for a-peal | Hospice at Home | Maramalade Awards 2019

This month we are supporting the Hospice at Home’s ‘Go Orange for our A-Peal’ by donating £1 for every kg of Pork & Marmalade Sausages sold.

Our Pork & Marmalade Sausages are made to our own recipe with the tangy and tasty Claire’s Handmade marmalade. They are currently on offer in-store for just £4.20 per kg.

Our fundraising effort coincides with the annual World’s Original Dalemain Marmalade Awards. The event raises funds and awareness for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland. This year the awards are being held on 16th March at Dalemain, near Penrith. There will be stalls, activities, lectures and workshops, with all of the entries displayed in the state rooms and hundreds of artisan marmalades available to taste and buy.

Hospice at Home is a Cumbrian-based charity providing high quality care and support for adults who have palliative and end-of-life care needs. We have supported Hospice at Home for many years now and we are keen to help them raise vital funds to help them continue to provide first-class care for patients, family and carers.

The Hospice at Home charity is also encouraging local businesses to take part in fundraising activities to celebrate all things orange!

1. How about a dress-down day in the workplace? Wear orange for a day.

2. Local food businesses to promote an orange themed menu.

3. Hold a cake sale with an orange theme.

These are just a few ideas to help you get started!

We’ll keep you up-to-date on how our fundraising efforts come along in future news stories and social media posts.
