A STRAWBERRY Tea to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care will take place in a Vale store on Wednesday, July 30.

The Place for Homes, a local furniture and flooring store, will host the event at the store in Llandow, Cowbridge.

The firm has selected Breast Cancer Care as their chosen charity and is holding the Strawberry Tea as part of their fundraising efforts.

Later in the year three staff members will also be running the Cardiff Half marathon to support the cause.

Rhian Francis, managing director of The Place for Homes explains: “Breast Cancer is a cause very close to my heart as my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, and following surgery and treatment is now well on the road to recovery.

"The number of people affected by breast cancer is enormous and Breast Cancer Care is there to answer questions and provide support not only during the treatment but afterwards.

"As part of our charity raising this year we are holding a Strawberry Tea in the store on Wednesday, July 30 at 10.30am and later in the year we have three staff members including myself running the Cardiff Half Marathon!

"I look forward to meeting everyone on the day, enjoying some excellent home baked cakes and most importantly raising funds for this excellent cause.”
