Hello good ladies and gents,
First off, thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!
On the 21 July, I will be hosting a Great Blooming Tea Party on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
As background, the charity provides end of life care to the terminally ill, allowing them to have a peaceful end to life and giving the family the support they need. As I lost my mum to cancer when I was 13, I know how important it is to have a strong support system around a person at that stage and I only wish my family would have had the added benefit of the Marie Curie nurses at that time.
If you would like a bit more information please head to www.mariecurie.org.uk/ or watch this rather beautiful ad here:
To help out, I have paired up with the fabulous Opium Bar (http://opiumchinatown.com/) in London's Chinatown for an afternoon of cocktails and jazz on the 21 July from 3-7pm. Glengoyne whisky has been kind enough to donate bottles of its teapot dram (available normally only at the distillery) and attendees will receive a bespoke cocktail in a teacup to enjoy while listening to the beautiful singing of Brazilian jazz songstress Aline Stoffel (more details on her here: http://www.alinestoffel.com/).
