News & EventsEVENT - Judy Murray serves up an ace fundraiser during Wimbledon fortnight
Judy Murray, mum to Andy Murray, Britainís number one singles player and Jamie Murray, Britainís top doubles player is encouraging people around the UK to hold a Strawberry Tea for Breast Cancer Care during Wimbledon fortnight.
Strawberry Tea is one of Breast Cancer Careís annual fundraising events. It is an easy and fun way to raise money for the charity and the perfect excuse for friends to get together and support the tens of thousands of people who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK. With the help of Judy Murray, Breast Cancer Care is asking people to organise their very own Strawberry Tea event this summer.
Judy said, ďA couple of years ago, I lost two really good friends to breast cancer. The three of us were of a similar age and we often played tennis together. They were so fit and active Ė and then suddenly they werenít there any more. Thatís when I became aware of the importance of screening and of the excellent support provided by charities such as Breast Cancer Care, which is why Iím so keen to help Breast Cancer Care to raise money. Why not use Wimbledon as an excuse to invite a few friends round? In return for a small donation they could enjoy a strawberry tea while sitting enjoying the tennis on your television.Ē
