Tam Cowan sizzles for Scottish hospices

Tam Cowan donned his chef’s whites this week to launch the Big Summer Sizzle.

The newspaper columnist and broadcaster joined hospice staff for a barbeque to launch the latest Scotland’s Hospices Together fundraising campaign.  

Tam is encouraging everyone to reach for the ketchup and mustard and host a barbecue 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 10 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 is co-ordinating joint fundraising campaigns to benefit all participating hospices.

John Brady, chairman of Scotland’s Hospices Together and head of fundraising at St Andrew’s Hospice in Airdrie, said: 

 “We are delighted the Big Summer Sizzle has returned for 2018. We hope as many people as possible across Scotland will get together with friends, family or colleagues and host a barbecue 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.”
