|Do join us for an entertaining evening where you can cook along with Tigist and her friends, learning about Ethiopian food and at the end eating what you have made. Once you have contacted Hospice Ethiopia UK via firstname.lastname@example.org you will be sent a list of ingredients to obtain (with substitutes for the more unusual ingredients) and the necessary preparations to be made in advance along with the zoom link.|
The Small but Significant group of charities working in Ethiopia are privileged to have Tigist and her Ethiopian friends cook their staple food and drink and hear what these items mean to them.
We look forward to seeing you via Zoom on Saturday 27th February @ 7.30pm. Suggested donation £10 per screen.
Hospice Ethiopia UK is delighted with the amazing support that they received during the donation
week in December. The success of the week means that the project to develop a range of
standardised palliative care courses approved by the Federal Ministry of Health can start early in 2021.

Hospice Ethiopia UK has continued to support Hospice Ethiopia during the pandemic with financial support, assisting with the procurement of PPE and advice about adjusting the day to day running of the hospice. The day unit has been closed and these patients are now supported by phone. Our fundraising has been severely curtailed this year by the pandemic but we were delighted to raise £439 at the Mannington Hall Charities day on September 6th. We’re also very grateful to donors who have set up a standing order, which ensures regular funds for Hospice Ethiopia. If you would like to help Hospice Ethiopia in this way, please email email@example.com
During the build-up to Christmas we’ve had several very successful fundraising events including a talk by Sue & Jamie at Ranworth Church, bag packing at Tesco’s in Aylsham, St Michael’s Christmas Tree festival and Carols in Aldborough Community Centre. These events have raised just under £900 in total. Very many thanks to all those who supported Hospice Ethiopia at these events.
For the second year running Hospice Ethiopia UK was accepted to take part in The Big Give Christmas challenge. We are delighted that we received 42 donations, which with the matching funds and gift aid totalled the fantastic sum of £10,425. This will pay the nurses’ salaries at Hospice Ethiopia for 6 months. We could not have raised such a phenomenal amount without our supporters’ generosity; we are truly grateful.
Following a talk to Holt Rotary club in October, we are very grateful to Maureen Ford for talking to a Rep from Welland who has supplied over 500 colostomy bags for the patients of Hospice Ethiopia who have a stoma. Colostomy bags are not available at all in Ethiopia, so this donation will really transform the lives of patients. Sue will deliver some of these to hospice Ethiopia when she visits in February.
Below is the lovely and festive HE Christmas tree at St Michael’s Church in December:
Many of you have generously made donations in the past that have helped provide crucial care for patients. We’re very excited to let you know that Hospice Ethiopia UK has been selected again this year to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019, the UK’s largest match funding campaign.
We will be raising money specifically to pay for the nurses’ salaries at Hospice Ethiopia for six months. These nurses provide vital care and symptom control in people’s homes for those dying from cancer and other terminal illnesses. They are often their only point of contact, bringing relief to truly desperate people.
Donations to this project will be matched for 7 days, from 12pm on Tuesday 3rd December. So, every pound donated during that period means two pounds for Hospice Ethiopia.
How do I donate?
If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will make even more of a difference to Hospice Ethiopia.
After 12 noon on the 3rd December, please visit our page at the biggive.org and follow the instructions. Please note that donations made via other means will not be matched so it’s really important to go through the ‘big give’ website.
Please note if you visit before this date/time you will be unable to donate. Instructions on how to donate will be added on the 3rd December.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks in advance for your support.
