Tea time is an English tradition that is taken very seriously, so why not spend it raising money for a good cause? That's what one English charity is doing for breast cancer, reports the Oxford Mail
Guests will be treated to afternoon tea accompanied by finger sandwiches and fashion. The money raised will go to benefit the charity Against Breast Cancer.
Chairwoman of the local charity, Jeanne Chattoe, thought that combining a time-honored tradition with a good cause made perfect sense.
"Afternoon tea is a lovely tradition, and it is something that everyone enjoys," she told the news source.
An afternoon of cakes and china cups is a lighthearted approach to raising breast cancer awareness
, but the guests will also be presented a fashion show, featuring clothing from local boutiques, as well as raffles and trade stalls featuring local businesses.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer, another English charity, estimates that over 46,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year.
