Let’s make this summer ‘strawesome’!
The Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Festival raises around $80,000 across our berrylicious events and helps raise awareness of Mary Potter Hospice. Why strawberries and ice cream? Strawberries celebrate life – they’re a super food and a symbol of summer. Join us for Sundaes for Good at your local Strawberry Festival – thanks for your support!
