Get together with your favourite people this summer and host a tea party in aid of Breast Cancer Care. The charity’s Strawberry Tea campaign runs throughout June, July and August and raises vital funds to support the 46,000 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK. To do our bit, we asked Susan Bates to create this special Strawberry Tea design for Cross Stitch Card Shop – you can either use it to stitch up some greetings cards to sell on the day, or simply take some fabric, threads and needles along to your event so that everyone can enjoy stitching it together. A nice cup of tea, a slice of cake and a spot of stitching – what could be better!
Holding a Strawberry Tea is simple and fun to do, whether you have an afternoon tea with sumptuous homemade baking, organise a picnic on a sunny day, or liven up your office tea break with strawberry cakes. Just ask for a donation from your guests, and raise a bit extra with your Strawberry Tea cross stitch goodies, too!
In the UK, someone is diagnosed with breast cancer every 11 minutes. However big or small your Strawberry Tea event, every penny raised will enable Breast Cancer Care to continue providing free support and information to anyone affected by the disease, when they need it most.
Register for a free Strawberry Tea fundraising pack full of strawberry recipes and tips, to make your event the highlight of the summer.
