Blooming Great Tea Party

Get together in your school and community for a Blooming Great Tea Party this June to raise money for Marie Curie. Your tea and cake will help Marie Curie care for more people living with any terminal illness. We’re counting on your cuppa. 

How to take part

Hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party in your school can be as small, or large, as you like. Simply get the kettle on, ask pupils to bring in their favourite bakes, or make some in school, and enjoy a memorable get together for a good cause. 


Activity ideas

We’re here to make sure you’ve got everything you need to make it a tea party to remember, without too much hard work. The resources below are all curriculum-linked, and will support your pupils to measure, plan, design, craft and sieve their way to some delicious treats to share.
