Tam Cowan sizzles for Ayrshire Hospice

Posted on 27 June 2018 by Monika Reichelt

Newspaper columnist and broadcaster Tam Cowan donned his chef’s whites at a barbecue to help hospices across Scotland, including the Ayrshire Hospice, launch The Big Summer Sizzle – the latest fundraising campaign to be co-ordinated by Scotland’s Hospices Together.

Tam is encouraging everyone to reach for the ketchup and mustard and host a barbeque to raise funds for hospices across Scotland: “I am absolutely thrilled to support The Big Summer Sizzle. There’s nothing better than filling your face with a burger or three, so what a great way to raise money for your local hospice.”

Scotland's Hospices Together is a national partnership between ten of Scotland’s independent hospices, working together to highlight the work of local hospice care across Scotland. As part of its remit, Scotland’s Hospices Together co-ordinates joint fundraising campaigns to benefit all participating hospices.

John Brady, Chair of Scotland’s Hospices Together and Head of Fundraising at St Andrew’s Hospice in Airdrie, explains: “We are delighted The Big Summer Sizzle has returned for 2018. We hope as many people as possible across Scotland to get together with friends, family or colleagues and host a barbeque to support their local hospice.  These hospices provide end-of-life care and support to patients and their families and are reliant on donations and voluntary support to continue providing that care.”
