MARIE Curie Cancer Care is asking the people of north Trafford to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party this June to help raise funds for the charity.

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.

Michelle Bate, community fundraiser 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.”
