The Big Tea Cosy is Breast Cancer Haven’s national fundraising campaign in support of people affected by breast cancer.

Over 55,000 people a year in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer and as many of you know a diagnosis can be frightening and the treatment gruelling. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and medication can all take its toll.  

We help people cope with the debilitating effects of treatment and the emotional toll of living with breast cancer. At five centres across the UK, our healthcare professionals and therapists run programmes of support, including counselling, supportive therapies to help combat stress, exhaustion and nausea as well as practical advice on things like healthy eating, exercise, money and work.

Our support is free of charge so that anyone who needs us can come.

But we can’t do it without you. We need to raise £1,000 for every person we help. 

We need everyone to host their own tea party with friends, family or colleagues from 1 – 31 March to raise much-needed funds and awareness so that we can be there to help even more people who have experienced a diagnosis of breast cancer.

Why not turn you tea party in to a 'Crafternoon'?

Our amazing friends at LoveCrafts have also created a range of fantastic knitting and crochet patterns that you can purchase online. All proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Haven. Turn your party into a Crafternoon Tea Party and start a new project. Keep it, gift it or donate it back to Breast Cancer Haven and we will give it to someone going through breast cancer treatment as a sign of comfort and support.
