Local mayor to attend tea-riffic party to support women affected by breast cancer

On Friday 6 March Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands are busting out the biscuits, boiling the kettle and inviting you to join their Big Tea Cosy tea party, any time between 10.00am-12.00pm or 2.00pm-4.00pm at their centre based in Solihull.

The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis, is set to attend in the morning. 

With a wide range of mouth-watering homemade cakes and samosas, great raffle prizes and of course plenty of tea and coffee available, it promises to be a real feel-good community event. Every cup of tea sold and slice of cake enjoyed will help people going through one of the most difficult times of their lives.

The event is now in its third year; last year the tea party attracted over 80 members of the local community and raised £950 for all those affected by breast cancer.

This year organizers intend on making it bigger and better, setting their sights high with the aim of raising £1,000.

By raising £1,000 the charity will be able to provide a complementary personalised programme of one-to-one support for someone affected by breast cancer. 

Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands also hope to inspire the local community to embrace the cold weather, cosy up with friends and loved ones, and ‘make a brew for breast cancer’ by holding their own tea party between 1-31 March 2020.

This campaign aims to inspire people to raise money, as well as reveal what Breast Cancer Haven can do to help.

By holding a tea party and raising just £40 will help pay for a counselling session to support someone suffering from breast cancer.

One in seven people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. Since opening in October 2017, Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands has supported over 800 people.
