DAINTY sandwiches and tea are set to be served to patients at Solihull’s Marie Curie Hospice in a bid to help boost funds.

The Village Hotel in Shirley has teamed up with the Marsh Lane hospice to host a Blooming Great Tea Party on September 18.

From 1.30pm until 3.30pm a team of chefs from the Dog Kennel Lane hotel will be serving up their new afternoon tea range to patients and their loved ones as well as members of the public in exchange for donations.

Mark Mills, leisure club manager at the hotel, said: “Marie Curie are extremely close to our hearts and we welcome these opportunities to support their amazing hospices and team and all of the fantastic work that they do. ‘The Blooming Great Tea Party’ fitted well as our team of chefs led by James St Claire Jones can deliver our new range of afternoon teas.

“We have worked in conjunction with Candice Brown from Great British Bake Off to come up with a fantastic offering that I’m sure will go down well for all.”

All proceeds will go towards helping the Marie Curie Nurses care for more people living with a terminal illness.

Entrance is free.
