A SHOREHAM firm hosted a tea party to raise money towards a new breast cancer centre.

HIT Training held an event for the One Million Pound Tea Party for The Haven appeal, raising nearly £100.

Managing director Jill Whittaker led the fundraising efforts by baking cakes and selling them to her team in the head office at Shoreham Airport.

She said: “The team really enjoyed getting involved with the tea party and gave very generously. The Haven is an extremely worthy cause and we are delighted to support the charity as they open a new centre to serve the south of England.”

The Haven will open its fourth centre in Titchfield, Hampshire, in October, offering complimentary therapies to breast cancer patients.

With the money raised so far, the charity has purchased a Grade II listed property and it is now fundraising to cover the costs of refurbishment.

Lucy Cowie, capital appeals manager at The Haven, said: “The One Million Pound Tea Party for The Haven forms part of our appeal to raise enough funds to open the centre in Titchfield.

“We really appreciate the support of everyone who held a tea party and we now plan to make this event an annual occurrence.

“We are delighted with the amount raised by HIT Training and hope to continue working with them in the future.”
