Two Wakefield Trinity Wildcats players have today supported the Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Blooming Great Tea Party campaign.
Club Captain Glenn Morrison and star player Julien Rinaldi sipped tea on the pitch at The Rapid Solicitors Stadium this afternoon, to encourage other local people to hold their own tea party from June 12 to July 12, to raise funds for the charity.
Glenn Morrison said: “We’re asking everyone in the community to host their own tea party to help raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care this summer. Holding a Blooming Great Tea Party is such an easy way to get together with friends or family. The money raised by simply popping the kettle on will help more Marie Curie Nurses to provide free care to patients with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.”
Whether it is a garden party, afternoon tea, a simple gathering of friends for a cuppa or just an excuse to show-off your finest china, holding a Blooming Great Tea Party couldn’t be simpler.
Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Community Fundraiser Ann Hodgson said: “I love nothing more than a good chat over a cup of tea so what better excuse to indulge than holding a Blooming Great Tea Party for Marie Curie Cancer Care? Every tea party will allow Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes so what are you waiting for?”
