HOST a blooming great tea party and raise money for a cancer charity.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is urging people in Huddersfield to sign up.

Over 140 people in West Yorkshire have already registered to take part this summer.

Local community fundraiser Ann Hodgson said: “We are pleased with the amount of people getting involved this year but we really need more tea parties to take place in order to hit our fundraising target.

“Tea parties can be held anytime over the summer, but to receive a fundraising pack people must register by July 31, so we are urging anyone who wishes to take part to sign up now.”

The Marie Curie nurses provide free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their homes.
