A 'Grand Mad Hatters Tea Party' took place on 14th July 2012 at Minshull's - http://www.minshulls.co.uk/ - in Crewe. The event was organised to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care http://www.mariecurie.org.uk/
Minshull's donated 50p for each cup of tea and coffee purchased on the day, along with the proceeds from their cake sales. Grants Butchers also donated 50p for each pound of their sausages sold at Minshull's on the day.
Chris Barratt chairman of the Marie Claire Cancer Care South Cheshire Group said, "We were delighted with everyone's efforts. Together with the tea, coffee, cakes and sausage sales, along with a sale of donated jewellery we raised a grand total of £461.40. The money will go towards providing home nursing care for cancer patients in our area."
Anyone able to spare a couple of hours to collect items for sale in our Marie Claire Cancer Care shops, please ring 0161 255 2800 (Fund raising office).
