Marie Curie Blooming Great Tea Party 2016

For the second year running we’re holding a Blooming Great tea party in aid of Marie Curie.

Marie Curie supports the people living with a terminal illness, and their families. They offer care and guidance to help people make the most of the time they have left.

Last year we raised £300 for Marie Curie, this year we’re aiming even higher! We’re aiming to raise a whopping £400. This money would pay for a Marie Curie nurse to look after someone with a terminal illness in their own home for 9 hours, pay for someone with a terminal illness to attend a day session at a Marie Curie Hospice, buy two slide sheets used by Marie Curie nurses to safely move someone into bed and buy 40 bereavement booklets for people who’ve lost someone close to them.

So, what are we doing this year, and how are we planning on raising the extra £100?

Our Blooming Great tea party will take place on the 24th June 2016. Priory Campus has kindly agreed to donate their main hall for us to host the party, and they’re also providing all the teas coffees and juice for the evening. The doors open at 5pm and everyone is welcome, we have activities for all ages.

After the success of last year it has been decided that we’re going to host another quiz! The quiz will start at around 6pm, so make sure you have your pens and papers ready.

No charity event would be complete without a good raffle. We have vouchers, products, and samples to raffle off from a whole range of local businesses. Some donated last year while some have just gotten on board, but we’re grateful to each and every one of them for their support.

Finally, we’re experimenting with some new recipes for the cake table!

We’re updating our progress on Twitter and Facebook event along with our Just Giving page. If you have any suggestions then let us know – we love a good challenge!
