Tea party raises more than £1,000 for charity
Serving more than 200 cups of tea, an Enfield woman has raised a grand total for a cancer charity.
Jacqui Perfect hosted a tea party in her back garden to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The 47-year-old Winchmore Hill woman and her husband Simon, 46, raised £1,175 by serving 240 cups of chai and selling cakes for the charity.
In a tragic twist, since holding the party, Jacqui’s uncle, Patsy, 88, was diagnosed with lung cancer and passed away within a month.
Mrs Perfect said: “My uncle Patsy was cared for by a Marie Curie nurse who was wonderful and gave him so many laughs in his last weeks and days.”
Community fundraiser Natasha Sadaoui said: “Jacqui’s tea party is one of many that took place across the country as part of Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Blooming Great Tea Party campaign this summer and hope everyone who took part had a fantastic time.”
The money raised from the tea party will allow Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes or one of the charity’s nine hospices.
