Jane McDonald is supporting Wakefield Hospice's new campaign.

The Taste of Home campaign, which is being supported by singing star Jane McDonald, asks people to host a dinner party, coffee morning or afternoon tea to help raise funds for the hospice.

It's part of a wider initiative running during March to raise funds and awareness of hospice care nationally. Wakefield Hospice is one of over 70 across the UK supporting the Open Up Hospice Care campaign.

Wakefield Hospice supporter Jane McDonald said: "I love the idea of getting together with friends and loved ones to raise money for an amazing cause. Eat, drink and have funeveryone."

Hospice care aims to provide support to every family facing a life-limiting or terminal condition, whoever they are and wherever they need it.

This campaign will help ensure that people are aware of hospice care and that more people can access the expert and compassionate support it provides.
