LOCAL craft-studio owner Beryl Taylor is inviting Clitheroe residents to a tea party and open day on Saturday, July 7th, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Beryl hopes for a large turnout to enjoy the day at The Craft Studio, in Taylor Street, and hopes to raise funds to support Marie Curie Cancer Care nurses in Lancashire.

She said: “My mother-in-law died of cancer and it’s extremely comforting to know Marie Curie Cancer Care provides this wonderful nursing service to the local community free of charge. Particularly at the moment, the charity needs our help and support to ensure their nursing service is available for anybody in Lancashire who needs it.

“I’m turning the two Craft Studio workshops into tea rooms for the day and will be putting on a range of activities including free tea, face painting, cupcake decorating and craft events. It’s free entry so I hope the Clitheroe community will turn out in force to have fun and help raise money for a great cause.”

Local Marie Curie Cancer Care community fund-raiser Sophie McCoy said: “We ask our supporters to hold a Blooming Great Tea Party event each summer to raise money for our local nurses, and we’re really excited about Beryl’s open day. She’s going all out to fundraise for the charity so I really hope the people of Clitheroe turn out to support her.”
