TORQUAY United players took a tea break after a recent training session to raise awareness of Rowcroft Hospice's Care for a Cuppa campaign.

Rowcroft is hoping hundreds of South Devon people will get involved in holding a coffee morning or tea party in aid of their local hospice next month.

United are keen supporters of the hospice and were thrilled to be asked to be ambassadors for the campaign.

"We try to support Rowcroft as much as we can and think this is a great way for people to raise money for the hospice," said United footballer Kevin Nicholson.

"It means you get to eat cake and drink tea and coffee — and the hospice gets a donation. Everyone's a winner."

If you are interested in holding a Care for a Cuppa party, or for more information, contact Laura on 01803 210846 or laura.cameron@rowcroft-hospice.org.uk for a fundraising pack.
