Jenny Gilruth Member of the Scottish Parliament for Mid Fife and Glenrothes constituency is joining Marie Curie’s call to throw a Blooming Great Tea Party and raise money to support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. 

Jenny Gilruth MSP said: “I am delighted to give my support to Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party challenge and will be looking to hold one in my constituency over the Summer recess. This is the twelfth year that they have run this event and it is a fun way to raise money for a very good cause.” 

Susan Brown Policy & Public Affairs Manager Scotland added: “Thanks to Jenny we hope more people will be inspired to take part and do something great this summer to raise money for Marie Curie.

“It doesn’t matter whether you #fakeit or #bakeit, if you throw a tea party and collect donations for Marie Curie you will be helping us reach more people affected by terminal illness and provide nursing care, information, emotional support and research to help them and their loved ones.”

Last year there were 140 Blooming Great Tea Party’s across Scotland raising over £61,500. 

Marie Curie made over 4,000 visits providing care and support to people in their own homes in Fife in 2017/18. Anyone can also receive free support through the Marie Curie Information & Support Line on 0800 090 2309 or visit
