It’s been a whirlwind of a year, but for local organisations, the show must go on. For Assisi Hospice, trying times amid a global pandemic meant that donations to support their patients have dropped this year. But it’s never too late to help, because they’re hosting their annual fundraising event, Assisi Fun Day 2020, online from 5th – 15th November 2020.
With a slew of e-stalls selling everything from decadent meals and snacks, to pamper sessions and hobby packages, you can shop and eat for a good cause. All proceeds will be funnelled towards caring for terminally-ill patients, so here’s the lowdown of the deals you can snag while helping others.
Note: Some of these deals are available from 5th – 15th November while others are in limited quantities under “Daily Specials”.
Every cent that you spend at the e-stalls will directly benefit the lives of the patients at Assisi Hospice, so you’re spending for a good cause. That’s all the more reason for you to browse through their plethora of food deals that range from hearty feasts to IG-worthy desserts.
