I am extremely excited to tell you that I have teamed up with Seasonal Berries & British Summer Fruits as their Berry Blogger and we bring to you an amazing month of Berry Beautiful Puddings as well as a FABULOUS Giveaway! To tell you a little more about Seasonal Berries and British Summer Fruits, and the exciting news that they are the proud sponsors of The Strawberry Tea in aid of Breast Cancer Care this year, I have posted some information below, and I am also VERY PROUD to be supporting British Berries on my blog too………
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.
ABOUT STRAWBERRY TEA
BRITAIN’S BERRY GROWERS TO SPONSOR BREAST CANCER CARE
Seasonal Berries, the PR campaign funded by British Summer Fruits, is delighted to announce its sponsorship of Strawberry Tea for 2012.
Strawberry Tea is the summer fundraising vehicle of Breast Cancer Care, and monies raised allow the organisation to provide free expert information and professional support to anyone affected by this life threatening disease.
“With 50,000 people diagnosed each year, breast cancer has a huge effect on families in theUK. We’re delighted to be sponsoring Strawberry Tea, and encouraging more people to host a Strawberry Tea party this summer,” said Laurence Olins, Chairman of British Summer Fruits.
The Strawberry Tea season runs from 1 June to 31 August, which coincides perfectly with the height of the British Strawberry season.
Judy Beard, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Breast Cancer Care said the support of British Summer Fruits is an integral part of the 2012 campaign.
“Our Strawberry Tea campaign is always very popular with our supporters as it’s so simple to organise, and very sociable. We’re incredibly grateful for the support of British Summer Fruits for this year’s campaign, and together we’re hoping to make it the biggest yet. All the money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by breast cancer in the UK.”
