Bondholder Treetops Hospice Care has launched its Tea for Treetops fundraising appeal and is encouraging the general public, schools and businesses to sign up.
Tea for Treetops encourages participants to host their own tea parties, invite friends and family and encourage giving donations and raising money for the charity.
Treetops Hospice Care is based in Risley, Derbyshire and provides nursing care and emotional support for adults and their families in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Mary Rose, community fundraiser, commented: "Tea for Treetops is a great social, summer event - a chance to treat your friends, family, pupils, visitors and customers to a piece of cake, a cup of tea and raise money at the same time."
"We're hoping to raise £10,000 towards the hospice and its services which we known have been welcomed and received by thousands of local people."
