Pop the kettle on for a good cause.
A leading charity is today urging people in Norfolk to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party to help provide care and support for people living with a terminal illness.
Whether it's a big garden party for family and friends or a small bake sale at work, every donation from the events – ideally scheduled from today until Wednesday week – will help Marie Curie nurses to look after more people.
Hugo Stevenson, community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Norfolk said: 'We know how much everyone enjoys baking, so it's easy to support Marie Curie with a Blooming Great Tea Party. Every pound raised will enable us to help even more people living with a terminal illness, including those we support directly in Norfolk through our Nursing Service and the Helper Service.'
On Wednesday, the Great Hospital will be hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party in the refurbished Birkbeck Hall in Norwich. The party, from 3-6pm, will be an opportunity to enjoy tea, coffee, homemade scones, gingerbread and shortbread prepared by the executive chef and Marie Curie ambassador Charlie Hodson. Tickets are £7.50 a person; call 01603 622022 to book.

Marie Curie is also grateful for continued support from Richard Bainbridge, chef-owner at Benedicts restaurant in Norwich. 'I love the passion of home bakers around Norfolk and hope that my recipes will help inspire the best Blooming Great Tea Parties and help raise money for Marie Curie,' he said.
