This summer have a Strawberry Tea with friends and help women facing breast cancer. Breast Cancer Care is the only UK-wide support charity helping the thousands of women waking up to the harsh reality of breast cancer every day and holding a Strawberry Tea party is a great way to show your support.
It couldn’t be easier – spoil your guests with sweet treats, add some strawberries, keep the tea flowing and ask for a donation in return. It can be as simple or extravagant as you like whether you have it in your home, at work or even at your yoga class!
Mother-of-two Frances, 48, from Surrey says: “I couldn’t have managed my devastating breast cancer diagnosis without Breast Cancer Care by my side – to support me and my young family. They were my lifeline. Through hosting a Strawberry Tea party this summer you can help Breast Cancer Care support other women just like me.”
Amy held a vintage Strawberry Tea and raised an incredible £330. She says:
“We’ll definitely be doing it again this summer – it was great fun! Here are my tips:
• Use the posters on the Breast Cancer Care website to advertise your event.
• Get local companies to donate raffle prizes – their generosity will surprise you.
• Ask others to help – my 6-year-old niece ran the “guess how many sweets in the jar” game, my sister managed the raffle and my mum and lots of other guests made tasty bakes to sell.
• Keep the tea pot full – so many people are touched by breast cancer that they will all want to show their support with a cuppa.”
