HOST AN AFTERNOON TEA
There are few things we enjoy more than a spot of cake-based fundraising. Here are some tips to ensure your Afternoon Tea is a piece of cake to organise.
Step 1 - Sign up for your Afternoon Tea fundraising kit
Registering for your kit is simple, just fill in the form here. Your kit will be sent out to you, packed with fundraising ideas, our very own Cath Kidston-designed bunting, and a whole host of games to play at your event.
Step 2 - Set up a JustGiving page
It’s super easy to set up and gives your guests a quick, simple way to donate what they can. We recommend asking guests to make a suggested donation to attend your event and popping the link to your page on your social media.
Step 3 - Plan your games and activities and get baking!
Breast Cancer Now has a whole bunch of downloadable games to inspire you – including bingo and quiz questions but feel free to get creative.
You can’t hold an afternoon tea without some baked goods. Pull out your favourite recipes or, why not try something new..
HIGHLY recommended bakes: scones (of course, just don’t get us started on the jam before cream debate), Victoria sponge and a good, gooey brownie.
Step 4– Put up the bunting and create your tablescape!
Be sure to download our bunting and posters to decorate your room. We’ve designed some beautiful Cath Kidston bunting especially for Afternoon Tea. Pick your favourite crockery and table linen – we’ll be using our new ethereal Celestial print tableware and add a beautiful vase or two of summer blooms.
Last, but not least – HAVE FUN
Enjoy being with those you love in any way you can. Enjoy their company and the laughter. Enjoy a delicious slice (or two, or three) of cake. But most importantly, enjoy knowing that you’re making a difference and helping build a brighter future for those affected by breast cancer. Save us a seat. Share your cakes, bakes and afternoon tea dates with us by using #CathKidstonxBreastCancerNow on social.
A final push on promoting your JustGiving page never goes amiss. Don’t forget you can also raise funds for Breast Cancer Now by buying any Cath Kidston mug, we’ll be donating 10% of mug sales throughout August to support the work of our friends at Breast Cancer Now.
Thank you so much for your support.
