March 2011 is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and The Eve Appeal charity, which funds groundbreaking research into gynaecological cancers, is asking women get involved with their ‘Make Time for Tea’ campaign. All you have to do is bake some lovely cakes and invite your friends round!
Lorraine Kelly has been involved in raising awareness of ovarian cancer for six years now and anyone taking part in the ‘Make time for tea’ fundraising campaign can win the chance to have a brew with her at a top london hotel next summer.
Over the last six years, this campaign has raised £350,000 to fund necessary research into ovarian cancer.
In the UK, ovarian cancer is diagnosed in 6,600 women every year and 4,400 women die. Despite huge advances in many areas of cancer research, the death rates for ovarian cancer have improved very little in over 20 years. And yet, funding and
awareness of the diseases remains low.
Says CEO of The Eve Appeal Jane Lyons “Lorraine’s support for the campaign has been invaluable over the years….”
“We are very grateful to her for hosting this afternoon tea – we know it will be a very popular prize and the icing on the cake for our lovely band of loyal supporters who hold tea parties for us.”
You can win your place at the table for you and a friend in three different ways – by raising the most money, by holding the most creative tea party or most beautiful baking.
“So” says Lorraine, “- put the kettle on, Make Time for Tea, and invite a few friends round! It’s so easy …so easy that I’ll be doing it myself.”
