Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Every year thousands of people put the kettle on and hold Bloomin Great Tea Parties to help raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.  This year,  they are aiming to raise £1 million!

Cancer affects everyone, whether it is a close member of your family or a friend.  

Come along to our Bloomin Great Tea Party on Tuesday 6th July from 10.45am – 3.30pm and enjoy tea and cake in our beautiful knot garden.   

This tea party will help to provide nursing care and support to terminally ill people in our neighbourhood.
