Tea, Coffee and Cake – Time to Bake and Donate to YOUR life-saving Charity!
This weekend (Friday 27th – Sunday 29th June), Essex Air Ambulance is calling on people across the county to hold a fundraising tea party in aid of the much loved Charity.
Afternoon Tea is a brand new fundraising initiative inviting hosts to sign up to take part and get their friends and family together for some tea and cake. You can make it as simple or as lavish as you like; hold it at home, work, school or even at your local club. Simply ask each of your guests to make a donation to Essex Air Ambulance.
Beverly Heard from Harwich is a volunteer for the Charity and is preparing for her afternoon tea. She said: “I got involved because the thought of afternoon tea with friends and people you know sounds lovely, sometimes we are to too busy and this is a perfect opportunity to meet up and also raise funds for Essex Air Ambulance.”
Margaret Eade of Southend has invited her friends and family for cream tea. Speaking of what inspired her to take part, Margaret said: “If it wasn’t for the Air Ambulance my son Matthew would probably not have survived his near fatal car accident last September. The little that I raise is far short to what we owe but every little helps as they say!”
Hosts can hold anything from a tea break with doughnuts to a Ritz style High Tea with cucumber sandwiches! You can buy cakes or bake your own its up to you! For some refreshing ideas visit EssexAirAmbulance.uk.com.
If you do not have the time to spare to host your own afternoon tea but would like to show your support then why not visit the Carousel Tea Room & Gift Shop in Westcliff-on-Sea or the Shoulder of Mutton in Fordham who are providing Afternoon Teas for their customers over the weekend with donations to Essex Air Ambulance.
