Tea up for cause
RESIDENTS are urged to host a tea party in return for donations to charity.
Marie Curie, which provides care and support for people living with a terminal illness, is calling on people to take part in the Blooming Great Tea Party in June.
Party organisers are encouraged to get together with friends, family or colleagues for a tea party, bake sale or community event from June 23-25.
Jessica Herrington, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Macclesfield and Poynton, said it’s an easy and fun way to help Marie Curie provide vital care and support for people living with a terminal illness, and their families.
She said: “Holding a Blooming Great Tea Party really is a piece of cake. Pick a date, send out some invites and simply raise a cuppa between 23rd and 25th June. You’ll join thousands of others across the Macclesfield and Poynton area doing their bit for Marie Curie.
“Whether you choose to make everything yourself or pop to the shops for some tasty treats, as long as you price each slice or put a donation box by the front door you’ll be sure to raise funds to help Marie Curie support people when they need it most.”
