British Summer Fruits is on organisation that represents 90% of berry growers in the UK. It funds and runs the Seasonal Berries campaign celebrating strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
Last year, British growers produced more than 49,000 tonnes of strawberries and growers are hoping for an equally good season this year.
Strawberries are an iconic part of the British Summer and will always be linked to calendar events such as Wimbledon and this year’s exceptional events such as the Queens’ Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
A Strawberry Tea is a fun and easy way to support Breast Cancer Care. All you need to do is get together with friends and family, buy or bake some cakes, add some strawberries, put the kettle on and away you go!
With a Strawberry Tea, you have the perfect excuse to catch up with old friends and tuck into delicious treats, all the while raising money for a great cause. And it doesn’t matter if you raise £20 or £200 because every penny will help us continue to support anyone affected by breast cancer.
