This summer Breast Cancer Care is asking you to host a Strawberry Tea party. All you need to do is buy or bake some cakes, add some strawberries, put the kettle on and away you go!
A Strawberry Tea can be as extravagant or as simple as you like, you could even hold one at your yoga class! And it doesn’t matter if you raise £20 or £200 because every penny helps to support the 55,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.
Suzanne from West Yorkshire says: “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 at the age of 39. My diagnosis left me feeling shocked and anxious about the future. I attended Breast Cancer Care’s Younger Women’s Forum and it was brilliant. It gave me the opportunity to ask lots of questions while meeting other women in a similar situation. I decided to hold a Strawberry Tea as I wanted to raise money to ensure that other people could receive similar free support from Breast Cancer Care.”
“The Strawberry Tea event was wonderful – the only problem was we had too many cakes! Friends and family came to support me and we had games, a raffle and even sold pin badges. Everyone was so generous! A Strawberry Tea is a great way to raise lots of money while catching up with friends and family. If anyone else is thinking about holding one I’d tell them to go for it!”
The Strawberry Tea campaign is sponsored by fine bone china teaware specialist Royal Albert and runs from 1st June – 31st August. Register now for a free Strawberry Tea fundraising pack full of ideas and tips.
