A leading cancer care charity is asking Whitby residents to organise a tea party to bring in much-needed funds.

Marie Curie is calling on people in Whitby to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party between 20-29 June.

Jennifer Carmichael, community fundraiser for Marie Curie said: “It’s easy to support Marie Curie with a Blooming Great Tea Party and it really is up to you how you decide to join in.

“Last year we had a fantastic response from the people of Whitby and this year we’re hoping that residents will continue to support us, whether that’s by holding a small family get together in their home, or a right Royal knees up in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday!

“Every pound raised will enable us to help even more people living with a terminal illness, including those we support directly in Whitby.”
