SILHILLIANS are being called on to get the kettle on and throw a Blooming Great Tea Party in aid of Marie Curie this June.
The charity’s fundraising appeal is a piece of cake – simply set a date to host a tea party and invite family, friends, or colleagues to tuck into a delectable treat and catch-up over a cuppa.
Every penny raised will go towards ensuring more people have access to the care and support they need at the end of life in their homes and at hospices like the one in Marsh Lane in Solihull.
Donations also support its Information and Support services, including a telephone line which provides a listening ear to anyone dealing with any aspect of death, dying and bereavement.
Daniel Goodby, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Birmingham and Solihull said: “Hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party is easy.
“Whether you want to bake up a storm at home or pop to the shops for some tasty treats, you’ll be helping support people in your local area living with a terminal illness.
“We’d encourage supporters to make the most of the extra-long bank holiday weekend in June too – a perfect occasion to raise a cuppa and some money for a blooming great cause. Just don’t forget to price your slice.”
