150+ Franke More in Store retailers support Marie Curie Blooming Great Tea Party campaign
Over 150 of Franke's More in Store retailers across the UK are setting out their stalls ready to host a Blooming Great Tea Party for Marie Curie in June. Registration is open until 10th June via Franke's More in Store microsite (www.moreinstore.co.uk) for any more retailers wishing to join in the fundraising fun.
This year, Franke has teamed up with UK World Chocolate Master Ruth Hinks to support the campaign.
Ruth Hinks is baking chocolate brownies for each of the registered showrooms from a recipe she has exclusively developed for the campaign. Franke is providing them free of charge, delivered in advance to retailers' doors. Ruth says: "They are the most indulgent chocolate brownies you'll ever taste."
Retailers will be sent a free marketing pack, including posters, postcards and tent cards, to help promote the event in their local community and thus help make them as successful as possible. They will also benefit from promotion on Franke's Facebook and Twitter pages, reaching a potential audience of over 20,000.
As an added bonus, Ruth will host a chocolate Masterclass at the premises of the top fundraising showroom, giving the winning retailer the opportunity to generate substantial customer interest and local publicity.
This national retailer event contributed more than £3000 to the final total of £650,000 raised across the country through Blooming Great Tea Parties in 2015, funding 32,500 hours of vital nursing care.
