Emley Show 2016: Everything you need to know

Katie Grinter, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie said: “It’s easy to support Marie Curie with a tea party and it really is up to you how you decide to join in. We want people in Huddersfield to tell us all about their tea-riffic plans. Every pound raised will enable us to help even more people living with a terminal illness which includes those we support directly in Huddersfield.
