A FAMILY in Kippen will be putting the kettle on for a good cause this weekend.

Terri Schutten and loved ones hope to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity on Sunday, August 13.

She and the family will host a tea party in their cottage garden, to collect funds and raise awareness.

Terri was motivated to organise the event after her brother, Patrick, passes away from a brain tumour earlier this year.

She said: "Patrick would never never turn down a piece of cake or a cup of tea, so we thought that an open garden tea party would be very fitting in his memory.

"The local community and surrounding businesses have already been so supportive by donating their time or a prize for our raffle.

"There will be refreshments on the day which include light lunches and homemade cakes. As well as a raffle we will have guess the name of the teddy bear.

"We hope to see lots of people popping in to enjoy the garden and refreshments enabling us to raise money for this wonderful charity."

The Brain Tumour Charity fund pioneering research to increase survival and improve treatment options.

It raises awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours to bring about earlier diagnosis.

The charity also provides support for everyone impacted so that they can live their life as full as possible.

The Schutten family cottage garden tea party will take place from 10am till 5pm at Burnside Cottage, Fintry Road, Kippen, FK8 3HL.

Prizes for the raffle include Glengoyne distillery whisky and chocolate tour for four people, two all day passes for M&D's Scotland theme park,voucher for the Inn at Kippen, a family pass to the safari park at Blair Drummond and more.
