VIDEO: Hold a tea party for Marie Curie Cancer Care

Marie Curie is calling on people in the Dales to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party this June and July to help raise funds for the charity.

It can be as simple as a cuppa with colleagues, a vintage inspired tea party or a garden party with friends.

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

Sarah Battle, community fundraiser for Marie Curie, said: “Whether you’re a dab hand at making cakes or simply enjoy a cuppa with friends, holding a tea party is a great way to get together and raise funds for an important cause.”
