Strawberry Teas for Breast Cancer Care
Nearly 46,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. That’s one person every 11 minutes. And just over 12,000 die from it. Every year. Together we can help to change that.
Breast Cancer Care has been running the Strawberry Tea campaign since 1998. Last year £400,000 was raised with over 1,600 Strawberry Tea events taking place during the summer. This year I thought it would be really wonderful if the food blogging community and food industry could get involved. We can help out by running our own strawberry teas all over the country, perhaps bring cakes into work, or run raffles. You can all get involved and hold an event, no matter how small or big, whether it’s a strawberry tea you hold in your living room for your neighbours or you run a village fete in aid of the campaign.

Win a Set of Mugs from Cornishware
It’s time for another exciting competition! Cornishware, the company behind the classic blue and white design of a pottery collection which has adorned British kitchens for more than eight decades, has teamed up with A Slice of Cherry Pie to give away not one, but two sets of four mugs from the new multi-coloured range. These gorgeous mugs come in two unique sets; ‘FOR THE GIRLS’ with soft ice-cream shades reminiscent of faded seaside bunting and ‘FOR THE BOYS’ with a rich, bold russet red, teal green and jet black as well as the classic blue. Two lucky readers will each receive one set of four mugs, worth £40 each. Find out how to win here.
In order to celebrate the launch of the new website I’ve teamed up with Matcha Chocolat to give one lucky reader the beautiful (not to mention delicious) Jade Gift Set, rrp £30. The set comprises of 16 assorted tea infused chocolates, 2 chocolate parasols flavoured with bergamot and Kashmiri chai, and a decorative tea caddy containing English Black tea. Perfect to unwind with.
Matcha Chocolat creates handmade dark, milk and white chocolates infused with a sublime selection of teas from around the world. Founder Katie Christoffers is drawn to the fusion between tea and chocolate for the rich heritage and diverse flavours that they both possess. As Katie puts it “tea and chocolate have inspired the senses for centuries and are now both enjoying a renaissance of interest on account of the sheer breadth of their flavour profiles and their readily understood health benefits.” This competition is now closed.
