Host a Strawberry Tea Party!

Seems as though Marie Curie Cancer Care aren't the only ones getting involved with baking and hosting tea parties this summer. Big names including actress Julie Walters and retailers John Lewis and Dorothy Perkins are all encouraging others to host a tea party in return for a donation. This can even be as small as a tea break at work.

You can read more and sign up to host a tea party here and tips on how to raise more at your tea party are below...

How to raise more from your Strawberry Tea

  • charge for cake – people are always happy to pay for a slice or two
  • sell tickets – or charge an entry fee at the door or garden gate
  • run a raffle – ask guests or local businesses to donate prizes
  • play the game – use the game or quiz in your guide to ask for extra donations.  You can also download more copies now
  • guess the weight of the cake – this classic game is always popular, with the winner taking the cake home
  • boss’s tea round – ask your boss to be on tea making duty for the day, with donations given for each cup
  • sponsored strawberry – ask someone to dress up and get sponsored for a day of looking sweet, but silly
  • market stall – a craft, cake or plant stall can be held almost anywhere
  • sell Breast Cancer Care pin badges – order a box now by clicking on the order materials button.
Recipes for your tea party are available here.
