Time for a tea party at city store.
JOHN Lewis Partners and customers launched a Blooming Great Tea Party to support Marie Curie.
The launch of the event at The Place To Eat in the store included bucks fizz for customers, who heard about how to hold their own tea party, as well as a prize draw.
Nurses and volunteers from Marie Curie were treated to some muchdeserved pampering at the Charlotte Tilbury counter.
The Blooming Great Tea Party is Marie Curie's summer fundraiser and encourages everyone to get together and hold a tea party, bake sale or special tea break in aid of the charity.
This year the event is being supported by John Lewis shops up and down the country and to kick off the campaign its Cardiff branch hosted the launch party.
John Lewis will also be making a PS20,000 donation nationally to Marie Curie, following the Blooming Great Tea Parties that have taken place in stores up and down the country this month.
Helen Cahill, community liaison coordinator at John Lewis Cardiff said: "We're so proud to be a part of Marie Curie's Blooming Great Tea Party campaign this year and I know our partners had a great time hosting this recruitment eventy with customers in The Place to Eat.
"It was great to see so many people get involved in such a great cause over a cuppa and some cake, and we hope we've encouraged lots of people to host their own tea party."
Hannah Leckie, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Cardiff and the Vale, said: "We had a fantastic time sharing a cuppa and cake with everyone and hope we've inspired lots of people to hold their own Blooming Great Tea Party later in the month.
"Every cuppa counts in helping Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families."
