Tea up for cause

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.”
