Marie Curie is counting on your cuppa!

Support the charity with June tea party

Marie Curie is calling on people across the Archdiocese to hold a 'Blooming Great Tea Party' in aid of the charity this June.

The Blooming Great Tea Party is Marie Curie's summer fundraising campaign which encourages everyone to get together with friends and family to hold a tea party between 23 and 25 June. Such efforts will help Marie Curie – the UK's leading charity for people with terminal illness – to provide vital care and support.

Antony Jones, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Liverpool, says: "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 23 and 25 June. You'll join thousands of others across the Liverpool area doing their bit for Marie Curie. 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."

Tea parties around the UK have raised over £5.4m since the campaign began in 2008. Visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty for further information or to register a tea party.
