Sup­port char­ity with a tea event

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A CHAR­ITY is ask­ing Poyn­ton peo­ple to hold spe­cial tea par­ties to raise funds.

Marie Curie wants res­i­dents to hold a Bloom­ing Great Tea Party in June and July to help fund the im­por­tant work done by its nurses who care for peo­ple with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness in their own homes.

Jes­sica Her­ring­ton, com­mu­nity fundraiser in Poyn­ton, said the party can be as sim­ple as shar­ing a few cup­cakes at a place of work, a vintage inspired tea party or gar­den party with fam­ily and friends.

She said: “It’s a great way to get to­gether with those clos­est to you and some­thing easy and fun for char­ity.

“Marie Curie is here for peo­ple liv­ing with any ter­mi­nal ill­ness and their fam­i­lies.

“We of­fer ex­pert care, guid­ance and sup­port to help peo­ple make the most of their time.

“Whether you’re the Mary Berry in your fam­ily, or en­joy­ing a brew with friends is more your cup of tea, hold­ing a Bloom­ing Great Tea Party is a bril­liant and fun way to get to­gether and raise funds for an im­por­tant cause.

“If you sold just 20 cakes and raised £20, this pays for one hour of nurs­ing care – it couldn’t be eas­ier to make a dif­fer­ence.

“By tak­ing part you will be help­ing to raise the vi­tal funds that make it pos­si­ble for Marie Curie Nurses to pro­vide care for peo­ple with ter­mi­nal ill­nesses.”

Last year across the UK the Bloom­ing Great Tea Party for Marie Curie raised £667,000, which paid for 33,350 hours of vi­tal nurs­ing care.
