Terminal illness charity Marie Curie is asking people to throw a ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’ this summer.

In a bid to raise as much money as possible to help people who are terminally ill and their families, the charity is asking people to hold a tea party and ask for donations on the day.

Hugo Stevenson, community fundraiser for Norfolk, said: “Wether you’re an aspiring pastry chef, or a total butterfingers, join the thousands of people in Norfolk who will be baking up a storm to raise money for people who are terminally ill across the whole country. We’re counting on your cuppa.”

Anyone can host a tea party, whether it’s a traditional tea party, bake-off style competition at work or even inviting a few friends over for some treats.
