Blooming Great Tea Party in Newton

Dozens of delicious homemade cakes were on offer at Newton Village Hall for the Blooming Great Tea Party held by councillor Sam Clark.

Sam Clark, from Roman Bank, held the party to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. The cakes were donated by those who attended and other well-wishers, and were washed down with pots of steaming hot tea and coffee, with Grandma’s Tuck Shop selling a nostalgic selection of sweets.

Steve Barclay MP was among the many people who popped in to join the fun and support this worthy cause.

The event raised £356, which will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Councillor Clark said: “We had a fantastic time. It was a great day with so many people attending and an extraordinary selection of homemade cakes and we had a lovely day with friends new and old.

“All the money we raised will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to terminally ill people in the Fenland area, as well as vital emotional support for their families.”

Councillor Clark’s tea party was one of many that took place across the country as part of Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party campaign.

To get help from the Marie Curie Nursing Service, talk to a GP, district nurse or discharge nurse. For more information, visit:
