MP backs Afternoon Tea fund-raising campaign

Stephanie Peacock, MP for Barnsley East, met with leading charity Breast Cancer Care recently to support the launch of Afternoon Tea, the charity’s annual summer fund-raising campaign.

Following the Parliamentary meeting on 15th May, Stephanie is encouraging her constituents to join in to support those affected by breast cancer.

The event raised awareness of Afternoon Tea, where people are encouraged to get together with friends, family or colleagues in July to raise vital funds for the UK’s leading breast cancer support charity.

All of the money raised at Afternoon Teas up and down the country will enable Breast Cancer Care to continue to be there to provide free care, support and information to those affected by breast cancer.

Said Stephanie: “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK today with 62,000 women and men diagnosed each year.

“That’s why I’m supporting Breast Cancer Care’s Afternoon Tea fund-raising campaign, so that the charity can continue to provide its vital support services, to those who need them, for free.

“I’d like to encourage as many people as possible across Barnsley to sign up on the Breast Cancer Care website and take part in the fund-raiser this summer.”
