Now visitors to the hospice in the run-up to Easter can make a charitable donation in exchange for a tasty hot cross bun breakfast.

Willowbrook CEO Neil Wright said the buns had “gone down a treat with patients, carers and staff.”

WICH, the local heritage charity committed to building a chapel in Knowsley Cemetery, Whiston, will be fundraising at the cemetery between 11am and 2pm on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March (Mother’s Day).

The group have plans to incorporate key elements of the former Whiston Hospital Chapel into the new building, which is already in progress on the site at Fox’s Bank Lane.

They are also receiving green tokens at Asda Huyton this month, so please give generously.

The Friends of Prescot Cemetery & Churchyard, meanwhile, have received £30 from the sale of postcards at Poco Coffee on Eccleston Street, Prescot.

St Mary’s Churchyard is looking splendid at the moment, thanks to the hard work of FPCC volunteers in planting daffodil and tulip bulbs.

Both FPCC and WICH recently received a £250 funding boast from Tesco’s Community Awards scheme.

Finally, 1st Prescot Scouts, who meet at St Paul’s Church, Bryer Road, raised £57.59 on Tuesday night with a Red Nose Day cake sale and car wash. All the funds go to Comic Relief.
