Blooming Great Tea Party

Marie Curie Cancer Care fundraising event

Gina da Silva from The Freud Museum is holding a ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’ in the garden of the Museum to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care, and everyone is invited. There will be delicious cakes, sandwiches, tea and coffee available to purchase. All the money raised from the tea party will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead.

Gina da Silva said: “We’d like to invite everyone to our Blooming Great Tea Party on 22nd June to help raise funds for Marie Curie. It’s going to be a fantastic event with wonderful cakes and sandwiches and a great way to make new friends. My father, Alexander Bento has been a caretaker at The Freud Museum centre since 1982 and has always supported Marie Curie. The more money we raise, the more free care Marie Curie Nurses can provide to terminally ill people in Hampstead, as well as vital emotional support for their families.”

Gina di Silva’s tea party is part of many others that are taking place across the country this June 20-29 as part of Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party campaign.

To get help from the Marie Curie Nursing Service, talk to your GP, district nurse or discharge nurse. For more information click here >

The charity is also a leader in research into the best ways of caring for people with a terminal illness. In addition to this the charity designs and advises on end of life services and works to ensure that the best possible care and patient choice is at the heart of commissioning end of life care across the UK. All Marie Curie services are completely free of charge. Around 70% of the charity’s income comes from donations with the balance of funds coming from the NHS.
