Ilkeston folk are being encouraged to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The money raised at Blooming Great Tea Parties will help Marie Curie nurses in Derbyshire to provide more free care to people in their own homes who have terminal illnesses.

Sarah Battle, community fundraiser for Marie Curie, said: “Whether it’s a gathering of friends or workmates for a cuppa, afternoon tea or a summer garden party, holding a Blooming Great Tea Party is a great way to get together with colleagues, friends and family and raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.”

To hold a tea party for Marie Curie call 08700 340 040 for a fundrasing pack, or visit mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty.
