A Blooming Great Tea Party in aid of Marie Curie

On Saturday 22 June between 2 pm and 5 pm 

Join us to help raise funds for Marie Curie, a charity that provides vital care and support for people living with a terminal illness and their families.  Every pound we raise will make a big difference to people affected by terminal illness. 

Marie Curie and Mel Giedroyc (of the Great British Bake Off) are calling on people across the UK to throw a Blooming Great Tea Party.  We will be helping to raise funds for this worthy charity. 

Mel Giedroyc, who has co-hosted the Great British Bake Off, is fronting the campaign says "Marie Curie's wonderful nurses and support line heroes need you to bake up a storm this June and raise a few quid at a Blooming Great Tea Party.  I love a good natter over a cup of tea, who doesn't?  That is why I'm supporting Marie Curie's campaign.

"It's a simple way to get together with your chums and raise money for people with a terminal illness.  It's a vital cause, so whether you invite the parish over for a croquembouche or catch up with pals over a pack of party rings, Marie Curie needs you to raise a cuppa and some money."

Marie Curie provides nursing care to people with terminal illnesses in their homes, or it's hospices, when they need it most.  The charity also runs a free and confidential support line which provides medical information and emotional support for everyone affected by terminal illness. 

Marie Curie eploys more than 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare proviessionsals, and with it's nine hospices around the UK, is the largest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS.  Please come and join us for High Tea - sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, cake - and bring your friends.
