At Nicola Jane we often hear how Breast Cancer Haven has supported many of our customers throughout breast cancer. When we heard about Breast Cancer Haven's national fundraising campaign The Big Tea Cosy, we jumped at the opportunity to take part and support our local centres. The Big Tea Cosy invites organisations, businesses and groups to host their own Big Tea Cosy tea party.
On Monday 12th March our Leeds shop was first to hold their Big Tea Cosy tea party. Customers from the local area were invited to join Cath, Joan, Moira and Amanda from the Leeds shop team for a cup of tea and a slice of cake with all proceeds donated going to their local Breast Cancer Haven, Yorkshire. As an extra special touch Moira who is an amazing baker, baked a tea cosy-themed cake which would rival any showstopper piece from The Great British Bake Off! This was won by one lucky customer as the first prize in their Big Tea Cosy raffle.
Next, it was our Chichester shop’s turn and on Monday 26th March customers from the local area turned up to help us fundraise for the Breast Cancer Haven, Wessex. With a counter full of homemade cakes and the kettle on, Kay and Louise from the Chichester shop team had a steady flow of customers throughout the day.
