Talking Tea Parties
Staying connected is often more important than we realise. Hosting a Talking Tea Party is great way to spend some quality time with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues at the same time as raising valuable funds for the work of your local Mental Health Charity .
This year we are encouraging people to host tea parties during May to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week.
Why not sign up today to hold a party at home or in the office, Choose a convenient date that suits you, we will send you a pack, invite your friends along and get brewing!
For more details either click the Fundraise For Us button to the left or email [email protected].
Take up a challenge
You may be planning a team challenge or something more personal, a challenge can be different for all of us. Whether you are thinking of doing a sponsored skydive, a sponsored walk or even committing to giving up a bad habit, get in touch.
We want to support you through your challenge and can help with any resources you might need. We will provide a supporter t-shirt and can help with promotion to help you achieve your goal and raise awareness along the way.
Fundraise in the community
You could organise an event at work, in a local community group or amongst friends and family. You probably have some amazing ideas but if you are looking for some inspiration, here are some events people have held recently to support us:
Whatever type of event you are planning – large or small – we are keen to hear how we can get involved if you need us. We can come and talk about our charity work, provide literature and promotional material, and collection buckets and tins.
If you’d like more information about how you can fundraise for us, email [email protected] or call 01371 876 641.
