FRIENDS, families, villages, businesses, communities and clubs are being urged to get the kettle on in aid of Julia’s House.

The children’s hospice is running its Time For Tea fundraising campaign again this summer, and is urging supporters to get together and host a tea party to help fund care time for life-limited children.

Launched last year as part of the charity’s tenth birthday celebrations, the campaign proved so popular it is now set to become an annual event.

Dorset Tea is again sponsoring the fundraiser, which is supported by AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe as well as the charity’s patron Martin Clunes and will provide recipe cards and a voucher for a free pack of tea for everyone who pledges to hold a party.

Fundraiser Sue Miles said: “Last year Time For Tea raised enough money to pay for more than 450 hours of care for local children. It would be wonderful to try and beat that. We had people from all over the country, not just Dorset, raising money for us which was amazing.”
