Hosting your Tea Party

Thank you so much for signing up to host your own tea party, we greatly appreciate your incredible support.

We’ve included some steps below to help you plan the perfect tea party – and if a tea party doesn’t suit you, how about a coffee morning or bake sale?

Set a Date and Time

Choose a Venue
Host your party at home, work, school or your local community centre

Invite your Guests
There are so many ways to invite your friends, family or colleagues: send out Invites, put up Posters, use Social Media or WhatsApp or send them an Email. Check out our list of how you can promote your event at

Fundraising Materials
We have a great range of materials available for your event, take a look at our Materials Order Form for the full list. You can also find materials available to download at

Bake or Fake
Make your own cakes, ask friends, family or colleagues to contribute a bake or pop to the shops and fake it – no one will mind as they are there to have fun and support a great cause

Raise Money
Ask your guests for a suggested donation to come to your event or have a suggested donation for each cake/cup of tea – both ways worth well! If you are holding a big event and want to use Eventbrite or JustGiving to sell tickets please do read through or Guide on Selling Tickets at an Event first.

Fundraising Activities
Organise some games for your event and ask guests for a suggested donation to take part, for example, ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’ – this is a simple but great way to get involved. Or how about organising your own Raffle? To find out more about organising your own Raffle visit

Ask for Gift Aid
This allows us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost to the person donating. For full details on Gift Aid please visit

Have Fun and Take Photos
We would love to see any photos you have taken, email them to or post them on social media using @eveappeal for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #MakeTimeforTea

Thank Everyone
Thank your guests for supporting your event and for their donations. If anyone has donated a raffle prize you may want to let them know how much you have raised

Collect and Bank
We encourage you to pay in the funds you have raised as soon as possible after your event. Visit for more details on how you can bank your funds.

We’d love to hear all about your plans along the way, please do not hesitate to get in touch either by giving us a call on 020 7605 0109 or by emailing – we are more than happy to help.
