Hold a tea party and support local charity

FUNDRAISERS for Marie Curie Cancer Care are appealing for residents across the Dearne to host their own tea party this summer in aid of the charity.

They would like community groups or even householders to organise a ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’ in June or July to raise money for the cause, which provides care to terminally ill patients.

Local Community Fundraising Volunteer Nikki Ayrton said: “We’re hoping to raise over £11,000 from tea parties taking place across the region in the next couple of months and it really is very much a case of the more the merrier when it comes to people signing up to have a tea party of their own. It’s a great way to get together with friends or family.”

To register to hold your own Blooming Great Tea Party, please call 08700 340 040 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty for a free fundraising pack.
