Actress Patsy Palmer hosted a glamorous tea party for deserving mothers earlier this month as she launched Yummy Mummy week 2012. Patsy is also calling on mums across the UK to do something yummy to raise money for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people.
Eastenders favourite, Patsy, was joined by author and celebrity chef Annabel Karmel and hosted elevenses for five mothers whose children are currently undergoing treatment for cancer. The event took place at Cavallino Restaurant in Chelsea.
The tea party was held to launch Yummy Mummy Week, which runs from Saturday 10 March to Mother’s Day on Sunday 18 March, and Patsy commented: “As a Patron of CLIC Sargent I’ve seen first hand the charity’s wonderful work supporting young cancer patients, and their families, at a very difficult time in their lives. I’m lending my support to Yummy Mummy Week as it’s a great way for mums to get together, do something yummy and have a great time in aid of a great cause!”
Television regular Annabel, who brought along some specially made delicious cupcakes said: “I’m supporting CLIC Sargent, a fantastic charity that does so much to help children affected by cancer. Yummy Mummy Week is a fun way to raise money and help CLIC Sargent continue its incredible work.”
Yummy Mummy Week is a fun-packed fundraising campaign during which mums do something yummy for children and young people with cancer, whilst spending quality time with their own children, family and friends. Money raised throughout the week will be used by CLIC Sargent to provide clinical, practical and emotional support for children and young people with cancer and their families.
Katie Turton, National Events Manager for CLIC Sargent said: “We’re delighted to have the support of Patsy and Annabel for Yummy Mummy Week. Yummy Mummy encourages mums to hold any type of event from cake sales and coffee mornings to dinner parties or pamper nights and have a great time knowing that all the money raised from their event will make a real difference to families affected by childhood cancer.”
