Wynard Ward ‘Make time for Tea’ and raise over £400 for the Eve Appeal

Staff on Wynard Ward at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital have raised £423 for the Eve Appeal by holding a tea party and cake sale.


The Eve Appeal is the only UK national charity raising awareness and funding research in the five gynaecological cancers – ovarian, womb, cervical, vaginal and vulval.


Make Time for Tea is their flagship fundraising campaign for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in March, which encourages people to hold tea parties to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.


The team created a fantastic array of cakes, cookies, scones and biscuits for the tea party and cake sale, which was held in the ward’s dining room. The area was decorated with bunting, balloons and spring flowers to give the tea party a real vintage feel.


The tea party had an excellent response and all the cakes sold out within an hour. They even had to send out for further supplies to stock up for the afternoon session.


Wynard Matron Tina Jones said: “In the UK over 6.500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year and as a gynaecology ward we have cared for many patients with this condition. We therefore were very keen to do our bit and raise some money for this cause by arranging a cake sale.”


“As Matron I would like to thank all those staff who made cakes, The café, Topsham who donated scones and all staff who worked together as a team to ensure this was a success, enabling us to raise a fantastic amount of money.” Tina added.
