A supermarket chain in Fraserburgh helped raise awareness and funds for breast cancer by hosting a Strawberry Tea stall.

Asda Fraserburgh took part in the Breast Cancer Care’s Strawberry Tea campaign with a party, cake decorating and games, including a teapot lucky dip, for customers.

Carolyn Taylor, the store’s Community Champion, said: “We are delighted to support Breast Cancer Care’s Strawberry Tea campaign.

“The money raised through Strawberry Teas make a real difference to people affected by breast cancer.”

Asda Fraserburgh will also have information on how the public can join in and host a Strawberry Tea of their own.

Ms Taylor said: “Whether it’s you and a few friends in the garden, a family tea party or even a strawberry bake sale at your work or school, this is a great excuse to get together, host a Strawberry Tea event and make a massive difference.”

Hannah Branch, community fundraising manager at Breast Cancer Care, said “We’re delighted Asda colleagues and customers are supporting Breast Cancer Care and Strawberry Tea this summer.

“We’d love more people to gather friends and family to host their own afternoon tea.

“The funds raised through each and every Strawberry Tea enable Breast Cancer Care to continue to be there for anyone facing breast cancer, from day one.”

Launched in 1998 Breast Cancer Care’s Strawberry Tea encourages people to hold a Strawberry Tea event in June, July or August in their homes, work or community to raise awareness and funds.

Ms Taylor said: “Asda has partnered with Breast Cancer Care for twenty years and supports the event to help raise awareness and funds to provide support and services to people affected by breast cancer.

“It was fantastic to see so many people come and show their support and pledge to host their own Strawberry Tea parties over the next couple of weeks.

She added: “Our colleagues and customers across Fraserburgh and the rest of Scotland have always been incredibly supportive of our fundraising activities and I know this time will be no different.”

All money raised will help Breast Cancer Care provide support for women, men, family and friends affected by breast cancer.
