The strawberry season has finally arrived and I’m writing to ask your readers to host a strawberry tea party for Breast Cancer Care - the only UK-wide specialist support charity.
I believe my sister, Lynn, who had breast cancer, would have been delighted with a strawberry tea. She delighted in everything that life offers, from Scrabble to strawberries.
So I say “Let’s start baking for a strawberry tea!”
Through holding a strawberry tea for Breast Cancer Care you can ensure that everyone facing this devastating disease has someone to turn to for information and support. Whatever you raise will make a huge difference - just £2 provides a headscarf for a woman who has lost her hair during treatment.
To register go to www.breast cancercare.org.uk/kettle anytime before August 31, or call 0870 164 9422.
