Curie Cancer Care.
a fifth year, Steve and Hilary Cox (pictured) will be serving
up hundreds of teas to the general public at their home, Newcote
in Brent Road, from 2-5pm to raise cash for the worthy cause.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "So many people have been touched
by cancer in some way or another, so this is a great way that
they can support a charity dedicated to helping terminally ill
people remain in their homes."
will be our 5th year, and we plan to make it bigger and better
than ever - all the neighbours are busy making, baking and growing
plants in order to beat last year's total of £2,100 in 3
were the largest tea party in the whole of the South West and
Wales last year, and served over 200 cream teas to locals and
holidaymakers. Some even popped in for 'takeaway teas' due to
work or other commitments, and rather than miss out completely,
they took their cream tea with them!"
will have our usual plant and cake stalls, and this year, we are
selling a selection of Marie Curie branded items which are ideal
to give as gifts."
tickets are available from the above address and some of the great
prizes on offer include a holiday to Littlesea Holiday Park in
Weymouth, a meal for two at the Shah Indian Resturant in Burnham,
a carvery for 4 people, including wine at the Berrow Inn, and
