Local Insert Woman / Man / Team, Insert Name, holds a Strawberry Tea event to help raise
vital funds for Breast Cancer Care


Insert Name of Insert Town / Village will be holding Insert details of the event, include time, date,
whether closed or open to public, what will be happening etc.


Strawberry Tea is one of Breast Cancer Care’s annual fundraising events. It’s an easy and
accessible way to fundraise for the charity and the perfect excuse for friends to get together and
support the tens of thousands of people who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the
UK.


A Strawberry Tea can be anything from an afternoon tea in the garden with a raffle or quiz, to a
strawberry tea-break in the office or cake sale at school. Or you could organise a Insert type of
event taking place similar to insert name.


Insert Name said of her event “Include details of why you want to help Breast Cancer Care, for
example ‘I know only too well how terrifying a breast cancer diagnosis can be that’s why I am
holding a Strawberry Tea event. Breast Cancer Care provides free support and information for
those affected by a diagnosis and every penny raised by events like mine will help the charity
continue their great work.”


In the UK someone is diagnosed with breast cancer every 11 minutes. By holding a
Strawberry Tea, supporters, like Insert Name, really can make a difference to those affected by
breast cancer by enabling Breast Cancer Care to provide them with free support and information
when they need it most.
