Earlier this week marked the exact day 40 years ago since the hospice opened.

Now we’re being asked to to host our own Big Virtual Birthday Tea tomorrow, April 24 to help all the nurses and frontline staff at the Fankerton facility to continue to care for all those who need them now and in the future.

A hospices spokesperson said: “Get together virtually with friends, family or colleagues on April 24 and raise vital funds to support our services.

Time to host a tea party for Strathcarron Hospice's 40th anniversary

"Think Zoom, WhatsApp, Teams or Facebook. Think home-baking, bake-off style competitions, online quizzes or fancy dress.

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

And we want you to send us your pics of you, your family and friends having a great afternoon.

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.

And they are hoping that the sunshine forecast for the weekend will allow lots of tea parties to take place out of doors.
