As a supporter of Marie Curie Cancer Care and a passionate cake baker, Jane Asher is asking local people to join the charity’s Blooming Great Tea Party celebrations this summer.
People are invited to hold their own tea party any time up to 12 July to raise money for the charity. Every tea party, however big or small, will help more Marie Curie Nurses to provide free care for terminally ill people in their own homes or one of the charity’s hospices.
Instead of going out for an expensive meal, a tea party at home can be just as much fun and can, at the same time, enable Marie Curie Nurses to support families through a very difficult time. From the simplest gathering of a few friends to an elegant high tea or a teddy bears tea party, there are loads of different ways of enjoying this great British tradition, and it’s a great excuse to get together with friends old and new, and show off your baking skills.
Sign up for a free Blooming Great Tea Party fundraising pack bursting with fabulous ideas to help create the perfect party. Call 08700 340 040 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty
If you hold your tea party and send in the proceeds by August 31, you will be entered into a draw to win one of 10 signed copies of Jane Asher's book ‘Beautiful Baking’.
