Raise cuppa for nurses


As a local Marie Curie Nurse I would like to invite everyone in Lancaster and Morecambe to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party for Marie Curie Cancer Care in June.

Whether its friends, family, neighbours or workmates, it’s always great to share a cuppa, afternoon tea or even a summer garden party. Holding a Blooming Great Tea Party is the perfect way to do just that, as well as raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The money raised at Blooming Great Tea Parties will allow Marie Curie Nurses, like me, to continue to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes. It is so important for people to be able to spend their final days in their place of choice, and for most people this means at home surrounded by the people and things they care about most. We rely on the generous support of the local community to ensure more terminally ill people can receive this care at the time when they need it most.

To hold a Blooming Great Tea Party between June 20-29 and receive a free fundraising pack call 0845 052 4184 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty.
