All you need to do to take part is get together with your friends and family, buy or bake some cakes, add some strawberries, put the kettle on and away you go. And it doesn’t matter if you raise £20 or £200 at your Strawberry Tea because every penny will help the charity support the 50,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
Every year, 55,000 people in the UK hear the words ‘you have breast cancer.’ The news is not only devastating for them, but also for their friends and family. Providing emotional support and information services, Breast Cancer Care is there for anyone affected by breast cancer. It’s a cause that we’ve been supporting since September 2005 and to date we’ve raised more than £650,000 for the charity.
Much of this success has been generated through the fantastic response we’ve had to the launch of our beautiful pink Rose and Lily Hand-tied, of which 10% of the sales are donated to Breast Cancer Care.
The money raised helps people like Frances, who used Breast Cancer Care’s helpline after her diagnosis. Frances said: “Breast Cancer Care gave me something extremely valuable and precious – they gave me time! Time to cry, time to despair, time to talk, time to ask questions. Their helpline was a number to call with any questions and concerns – it became a hotline to my sanity!”
And now, to celebrate the season of Strawberry Tea, we’re offering you the chance to win one of these beautiful bouquets for yourself or a loved one. We think it’s the perfect centrepiece for your fundraising event!
