Helping turn cakes into care Finlay Carson MSP is supporting Marie Curie’s summer fundraising campaign Blooming Great Tea Party.
Carson will be hosting his own Blooming Great Tea Party on the 26th of June from 10:00-12:00 in his office in Castle Douglas, and invites everyone to join him.
At the recent Blooming Great Tea Party in the Scottish Parliament Finlay met with representatives from the charity that provides care and support for people living with a terminal illness, and their families.
Marie Curie is encouraging people to get together with friends, family or colleagues to host a tea party, bake sale or special tea break to raise funds.
Marie Curie made over 3,733 visits providing care and support to over 444 people in their own homes in NHS Dumfries and Galloway in 2015/16. The charity also has Information and Support Services that are available for everyone affected by a terminal illness.
Commenting, Galloway and West Dumfries MSP, Finlay Carson said:
“Marie Curie is such an important charity, providing end of life care and support for people with a terminal illness. I am delighted to be hosting a Tea Party in my constituency office to help raise much needed funds.
“I would invite everybody to pop in, buy a cake and have a blether. I look forward to welcoming you on the 26th of June.”
Susan Lowes Policy & Public Affairs Manager Scotland added:
“Thanks to Finlay we hope more people will be inspired to take part and get together with friends, having a great time raising dough for Marie Curie.”
Last year 366 people and 64 Marie Curie fundraising groups in Scotland took part in Blooming Great Tea Party and raised almost £93,000 for the charity.
