Have your say

Likeable TV host Lorraine Kelly wants you to put the kettle on – and help her raise £150,000.

March is ovarian cancer awareness month and The Eve Appeal charity wants people to mark the occasion by throwing their own tea parties.

The money raised will help them spread the word about gynaecological cancers.

Lorraine, a host on ITV’s Daybreak, says: I have been a proud supporter of The Eve Appeal for six years.

‘I first came on-board in 2005, when the charity launched its first ever Make Time for TEA campaign in March, to coincide with Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

‘The Make Time For Tea campaign was designed to get women together, hold a tea party and send the money raised to The Eve Appeal.

‘What better way to donate to a very worthwhile cause and have fun with your girlfriends at the same time?’

This year it’s hoped the campaign will raise £150,000.
