Thirsty fundraisers are being encouraged to put the kettle on and raise vital funds for charity. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is organising its very first Big Tea Break – a chance for the public to brew-up, relax and spend quality time together.
They idea is that they make a donation and all funds go to EACH, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
Community Fundraising Manager Tina Burdett said: “We’re asking our supporters to pop the kettle on, share a cuppa with family, friends and colleagues and join us for our very first Big Tea Break.
“It’s a chance for people to take a well-earned breather, while helping EACH, and we’re encouraging people to host their own get-togethers between Saturday, 25th March and Friday, 31st March.
“Please spread the word and for more information, including how to register an event and download a fundraising pack, check our website.”
The idea for the fundraiser ties in with the wellbeing and support services offered by EACH, which has three hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, The Treehouse, in Ipswich, and at Milton, near Cambridge.
“One of our key messages is that we help families create memories together,” added Tina.
“Now we want to encourage our supporters to take a break and make memories with family, friends and colleagues. By sharing a cuppa, they can celebrate some time together while helping the families we care for make their own special memories.”
Supporters are being encouraged to snap, tag and share their photos using the hashtag #BigTeaBreak and they can donate £3 by texting BIGTEABREAK to 70085.
Texts will cost the donation amount plus one message at your standard network message rate.
