Blooming great tea party in Penicuik

Marie Curie’s Penicuik and District Fundraising Group is hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party to raise funds on 23 May 2015 from 10am til 1pm.

The event at Penicuik Town Hall will include lovely home baking, stalls and a tombola.

All the money raised will help Marie Curie provide more free care to people living with a terminal illness in their own homes and at the Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh.

Fiona Bushby, Fundraising Manager said: “We hope that the local community in Penicuik will join us at the group’s event and help support Marie Curie. We’ve got lots planned for our Blooming Great Tea Party and hope to welcome many supporters on the day. All the money raised will help Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to help people living with a terminal illness get the most from the time they have left.”

The group’s tea party will join others taking place across the country this June 20-29. Last year across the UK the Blooming Great Tea Party for Marie Curie raised £667,000, which pays for 33,350 hours of vital nursing care.
