Fundraising triumph: the icing on the cake for Franke’s ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’

In June, Franke once again helped kind-hearted More in Store retailers host their own ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’ events across the country and all of the funds raised have now been counted up. 88 retailers took part, together raising £7,244 for Marie Curie – smashing Franke’s target of £5,000.

All of the proceeds will help Marie Curie support people living with a terminal illness, and their families.

Cookery writer and author, Judi Rose, created an exclusive Luscious Lemon Drizzle cake for this year’s tea parties and Franke donated two to each participating retailer.

As well as the delicious cakes, Franke provided retailers with free marketing packs which included posters, postcards and tent cards to help them promote the event in their local communities.

Jeanette Ward Franke Communications Manager said: “We’re incredibly grateful to all the wonderful retailers who hosted their own ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’ events for Marie Curie across the UK in June. They raised a fantastic amount of money and we thank them for all the work they put into hosting these successful events.”
