Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is asking people to Cook Eat Give and raise money for its Charlton Farm children’s hospice, in Wraxall, next month.

The pandemic has had a huge impact on the charity and the families it supports, so the hospice has launched a new fundraiser to encourage people to donate what they can to help.

CHSW community fundraiser Laura Robertson said: “We’re inviting people to enjoy great food and company while raising a few pounds for local families who need our hospices.
