Janice Heaton of Lancaster Park at Morpeth will be hosting a Make Time For Tea event in aid of The Eve Appeal in memory of her aunt Ann Robbie, who died of ovarian cancer in 2010.

TEA time will come earlier than usual in Morpeth this weekend with a fundraising charity event.

Lancaster Park resident Janice Heaton is organising a Make Time for Tea event in aid of The Eve Appeal, which is the UK’s only national gynaecological cancer research charity.

Mrs Heaton is holding the event in memory of her aunt Ann Robbie, who died of ovarian cancer in March 2010.

She said: “I did one a couple of years ago, but hopefully this one will be a bit bigger.

“I would like as many people as possible to come along. I have advertised it in the church, on Facebook and with friends so if I get about 75 people there it would be wonderful.

“If I can raise about £200 I would be over the moon.

“You can have Make Time For Tea events throughout the year, but with March being Ovarian Cancer Month and that being what my aunt died of, I thought I would like to do it now.”

The Eve Appeal raises funds for research into ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, vulval cancer, vaginal cancer and womb cancer and aims to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of the disease.

Mrs Heaton’s Time For Tea event takes place in Morpeth Methodist Church in Howard Terrace on Saturday, from 10am to 1pm.

There will be tea and cakes and visitors can also pick up information leaflets about The Eve Appeal.
