Yes! It's true! There is a heavenly host of fabulous Tea Cosies taking place across the UK from Wednesday 1st - Tuesday 7th February 2017, helping to raise money for Breast Cancer Haven to enable them to continue their fabulous work of supporting people affected by breast cancer. #TheBigTeaCosy campaign has raised £75,000 in its first three years.
This is a fabulous event to help raise awareness of (and funds for!) Breast Cancer Havenwhile having lots of fun with friends over a cuppa.
I'm especially passionate about Breast Cancer Haven and what they offer in their treatment centres across the UK, as they helped me get through my breast cancer treatment in 2011-12 via a variety of complementary therapies and workshops, including a life-changing session of art therapy!
Sadly, due to university workloads and health issues, I am unable to host a live #TheBigTeaCosy event BUT I wanted to share the ways in which YOU could help take part in the fun!
- If you'd like to have a cuppa and then donate, please visit: Breast Cancer Haven : TheBigTeaCosy
- If you're a creative genius in the guise of a magic knitter, then you could also help to raise funds for Breast Cancer Haven by auctioning off a few! Here's a few tea cosy patterns to get you started: Love Knitting + Cosy Patterns 1 + Button Up Your Cup + Ravelry Tea Cosy + 32 Tea Cosy Patterns (please kindly note: these patterns are not suitable if you wish to retail them; they are, however, free for you to use and exchange for donations; thank you for your understanding)
If you are able to share a cuppa with friends this week, do share the love by posting any photographs online, using the hashtags #thebigteacosy #letsgetcosy #breastcancerhaven- make sure to tag me on Twitter @CallieCarling and Instagram @Callie_Carling and I will gladly retweet and repost for you!
Thank you and bless you for joining in the fun ... enjoy your cuppa 'n cake, knowing that it's for a very worthwhile cause!
