Stuart McMillan MSP for Greenock and Inverclyde is joining Marie Curie’s call to throw a Blooming Great Tea Party and raise money to support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.
On Friday 23 August between 10am-12noon, Stuart is hosting a tea party in his constituency office at 26 Grey Place, Greenock, PA15 1YF to show his support for Marie Curie’s life changing work.
The local SNP MSP said:
“I’m delighted to host my own Blooming Great Tea Party to raise money for Marie Curie to support people in Inverclyde and across Scotland living with a terminal illness.
“Marie Curie provide a first-class holistic service and go the extra mile to support people’s loved ones during this difficult time too. I hope many of my constituents come along for some tea, cake, a chat and to help fundraise for this more-than-worthy charity.”
Susan Brown Policy & Public Affairs Manager Scotland added:
“Thanks to Stuart we hope more people will be inspired to take part and do something great this summer to raise money for Marie Curie.
“It doesn’t matter whether you #fakeit or #bakeit, if you throw a tea party and collect donations for Marie Curie you will be helping us reach more people affected by terminal illness and provide nursing care, information, emotional support and research to help them and their loved ones.”
Last year there were 140 Blooming Great Tea Party’s across Scotland raising over £61,500.
Marie Curie made over 200 visits providing care and support to people in their own homes in Inverclyde in 2017/18. Anyone can also receive free support through the Marie Curie Information & Support Line on 0800 090 2309 or visit mariecurie.org.uk/help.
