Get together over a Strawberry Tea
This summer catch up with family, friends or colleagues over a Strawberry Tea – it’s so simple and a perfect excuse for a get together. Just keep the tea flowing, add some strawberries and cakes and ask your guests for a donation. And whether you raise £20 or £200 every penny counts and your support will help women facing breast cancer today.
“I was diagnosed at the age of 29 and had questions that no-one seemed able to answer. There weren’t many cases of younger women being diagnosed in my area, so I found the information from Breast Cancer Care invaluable. I discovered I wasn’t the only person with these fears and they were actually quite normal.”
