The end-of-life charity Marie Curie is calling on people across Birmingham & Solihull to throw a Blooming Great Tea Party in June and July to help fund vital care and support for those living with a terminal illness, and their families.  

The charity’s fundraising appeal is a piece​ of cake – simply set a date to host a tea party and invite family, friends, or colleagues to tuck into a delectable treat and catch-up over a cuppa. 

Every penny raised from a Blooming Great Tea Party will go towards ensuring more people have access to the care and support they need at the end of life.  

Marie Curie is dependent on public donations so that it can continue caring for people at the end of life through Support services locally in their own homes and at the Marie Curie hospice on Marsh Lane, Solihull. Donations also support its Information and Support services, including a telephone line which provides a listening ear to anyone dealing with any aspect of death, dying and bereavement.  

Daniel Goodby, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser in Birmingham & Solihull said: “Hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party is easy. Whether you want to bake up a storm at home or pop to the shops for some tasty treats, you’ll be helping support people in your local area living with a terminal illness.

“We’d encourage supporters to make the most of the ​extra-long bank holiday weekend in June too – a perfect occasion to raise a cuppa and some money for a blooming great cause. Just don’t forget to price your slice!”
