Tea and cakes as Leeds Building Society supports Marie Curie services

Head Office and branch staff at Leeds Building Society will be putting the kettle on to support Marie Curie Cancer Care by taking part in the charity’s annual Blooming Great Tea Party this summer.

Colleagues and customers will be invited to the Society’s Tea Parties to raise money for local Marie Curie services. They launched their involvement with a small tea party outside their Head Office where Sales & Marketing Director, Kim Rebecchi, was served with tea and specially iced cake by Marie Curie fundraiser Brian Curran.

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society Sales and Marketing Director said, “We are really looking forward to taking part in the Blooming Great Tea Party this summer. We’d like to invite everyone to our Blooming Great Tea Parties to help raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. They are going to be fantastic events and a great way to get together with friends old and new. The tea parties will be taking place across our branch network during June and July.”

Brian Curran, Marie Curie Cancer Care Corporate Development Manager said, “We’d like to say a big thank you to Leeds Building Society for holding a Blooming Great Tea Party to support Marie Curie Cancer Care. The funds raised from the party will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in our Hospices. We hope all the staff and customers enjoy a nice cuppa and a slice or two of cake. We would be delighted if more companies and individuals would organise their own Blooming Great Tea Parties.”
