A Preston hospice is to have a special cake created for its 30th anniversary.


April 29 marks the moment when three decades ago St Catherine’s Hospice in Lostock Hall first started providing care for the city and surrounding area.

Andrea Ousby, who runs Celebration Cakes and Sugar Craft in Freckleton, heard about the Give A Gift campaign being run by the hospice.

The award-winning cake maker heard about the appeal from her accountant Tom Boardman.

She said: “Tom asked if I’d be interested in making a cake for St Catherine’s and I said I’d be delighted to! I have put together a unique design which I will bake and decorate for the official 30th anniversary next month.

“The colour scheme is green and white, there will be three sponge tiers and it will be decorated with handcrafted sugar butterflies – the well-known and well-loved symbol of the hospice.

“I have worked for years in my kitchen with the saying ‘Life is not measured by the amount of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away’ pinned to cupboard. It seems like an appropriate message to have on the cake too.”

The cake is to be presented at a celebration event at the hospice.

For more information about the Give A Gift campaign and how you, your business, school or organisation can get involved during the hospice’s 30th year visit, email or call 01772 695290.
