Marie Curie Cancer Care is asking the people of Galloway to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party to help raise funds for the charity from 20th – 29th June.

It can be as simple as a cuppa with colleagues, a vintage inspired tea party or garden party with friends. It’s a great way to get together with friends and family to do something easy and fun for charity.

The money raised from Blooming Great Tea Parties will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Fiona Leitch and Claire Stuart-Paulin, Community Fundraisers for Marie Curie Cancer Care recently stopped for some tea and cake in the office.

Fiona said: “Whether you’re a dab hand at baking cakes or simply enjoying a cuppa with friends is more your cup of tea, holding a Blooming Great Tea Party is a fun way to get together and raise funds for an important cause. However big or small your tea party, by taking part you will be helping to raise the crucial funds that make it possible for Marie Curie Nurses to provide care for people with terminal illnesses at the time when they need it most.”
