SCIENTISTS at a pioneering medical research centre took time out and enjoyed a cuppa when a tea company called in to deliver a package containing a fundraising brew.

Tea Box, based on Stewart Road, Sharrow, visited the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience to donate the new blend of tea which they have devised in aid of the Broad Appeal, raising awareness and funds for the fight against motor neurone disease.

They hope the Cricketer’s Tea will be a boost for the campaign, run by former England cricket international Chris Broad after his wife Miche died from the condition for which there is no cure.

The visit to the Dorset Street facility, staffed by scientists and clinicians from the University of Sheffield, was organised because it is Europe’s first research institute dedicated to find finding better treatments for the disease and ultimately to discover a cure.

Kirsty Munro from Tea Box wanted to share the company’s new brew with staff there after discovering the amazing work taking place on her doorstep.
