The owners of a Longton tea room are encouraging more people to get involved in Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party.

The campaign encourages everyone to get together with friends and family to hold a tea party between June 20-29.

Tea parties across the UK have raised over £4.5 million since the campaign started in 2008, with funds raised helping Marie Curie Nurses care for more people living with a terminal illness in their own homes in Preston.

Nick and Donna Cadwallader of Happy Bunnies in Chapel Lane will be hosting a fundraising event slightly later, on July 31.

Donna said: “If you want to be involved please get in touch. In our family we have been affected by the loss of people to terminal illness so we want to put something back.

“Tea parties are a great way to do something fun for a good cause.”

Katherine Howell Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie, Lancashire said: “Whether you’re an aspiring Mary Berry or prefer to let someone else do the baking, getting together with friends and family to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party is a fun and easy way to support your local Marie Curie Nurses.”
