This October, award winning chef Simon Hulstone, Head Chef at The Elephant Restaurant, Torquay will be supporting Rowcroft Hospices Dine at Mine campaign, aimed at encouraging local people to organize a fundraising meal whilst raising money to help provide care to local people with life-limiting illnesses.


Simon Hulstone, winner of the Roux Scholarship and to date the only British chef to win gold at the World Chef Championships in France said,


I am delighted to be supporting Rowcroft Hospices new Dine at Mine campaign. Food is at the heart of everyones lives, and a dinner party is a wonderful way to enjoy the company of friends and family. Dine at Mine is a good excuse to have a fantastic night, and to raise money for this very worthy local cause.


You can take part in this new fundraising initiative by organizing a meal; anything from bangers and mash to posh nosh, from a take away and DVD to a grand banquet. Invite your friends and family and raise funds by ask them to make a donation for their meal or by holding a fundraising raffle or quiz on the night.



Laura Cameron, Community Fundraiser at Rowcroft Hospice said Whether youre an experienced party host or a complete cooking novice, your evening can take any form - from a three course formal meal to nibbles and wine tasting or a good old fashioned barbeque! It costs 4.50 to provide food and drink for a patient for one day, therefore if one dinner party raises 80 this will pay for meals for all patients on the ward for 24 hours.


Dine at Mine will raise funds for Rowcroft Hospice, a charity that provides care and support to people in the South Devon area with life-limiting illnesses. The care is provided in Rowcrofts 17 bedded inpatient unit and through community services, a hospice at home team, bereavement support and a dedicated outpatient building offering a lymphoedema clinic and complementary therapy.


If you would like to take part in Dine at Mine, please contact Hayley Norrish or Laura Cameron on 01803 210833 for your fundraising pack complete with tips to help make your meal a massive success!
