"However you decide to host your Big Virtual Birthday Tea for Strathcarron, we are here to support you every step of the way.”

The hospice can even help with virtual backgrounds you can use on Zoom and an 80s themed quiz you can download and play with friends, family or colleagues.

There will also be an afternoon of entertainment live on air from noon-6pm that day with Central FM.

They added: “Sign up to host your own Big Virtual Birthday Tea now and help us to keep on caring. We need you now more than ever.”

Hosting tea parties has always been a popular way of fundraising enjoyed by the hospice’s many supporters but during the past 12 months people have been unable to meet in each other’s homes.

However, Strathcarron is determined not to let this stop people helping them.
