The Marie Curie Cancer charity is asking for people in the county to host a ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’ event this autumn – and organisers launched the campaign at Kettering’s 1940s themed Blitz Cafe.
Laura Foy, from Marie Curie, said the cafe is hosting a special charity weekend on Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15, in support of the campaign, but the charity is also hoping people host their own parties as well.
She added: “Dinner Down Memory Lane is a fantastic way of incorporating having a fun dining experience and raising vital funds for Marie Curie.
“Whether it’s hosting a themed dinner party at home or popping into the Blitz Tea Room and Jazz Lounge for our charity weekend, the support we receive really will make a fantastic difference to the local Northamptonshire nursing service.”
Laura added: “Indulge in Dinner Down Memory Lane and get a taste for a retro classic in support of Marie Curie this Autumn.
“To sign up and get a free fundraising pack visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/dinner or phone 0845 052 4184.”
Instead of being asked to bring a bottle or dessert to the Dinner Down Memory Lane events, people are asked to bring a donation for Marie Curie instead.
Justin Betts, manager of The Blitz, added: “The Blitz Tea Room is honoured to be supporting and be part of Dinner Down Memory Lane in aid Marie Curie.
“It’s such an important cause and affects so many so we really hope it’s a great success.”
