Make Time for Tea

This March, dust off your cake mixer, get baking and Make Time for Tea. It’s is our annual fundraiser during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. And whether you want to host a tea party for your closest friends, or your whole community, we are here to support you.

You can sign up and get your free Make Time for Tea fundraising pack using the form below – we encourage that you hold your tea party in March as part of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month but are happy for you to hold your event later in the year at a time that would best suit you. Do note, Make Time for Tea is re-launched at the beginning of each new year so if you are interested in signing up for 2017 do re-visit us in January or email to register your interest.

The funds you raise through your Make Time for Tea party can help save lives from ovarian cancer, by helping The Eve Appeal to support projects to raise awareness and achieve earlier diagnosis. The current five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer is 43%, but if diagnosed at an earlier stage women have up to a 90% chance of surviving for five years or more.

“It’s such a relaxing and easy event to organise”

Lorraine Wareing is a regular supporters of Make Time for Tea after her sister, Linda Wood, told her about The Eve Appeal: “Our mum had ovarian cancer and passed away in 2003 and we were totally devastated. Holding a tea party in March 2014 was the first time I had ‘celebrated’ her life and done something in her honour and it was quite an emotional day. The table was overflowing with cakes and in the center was a bunch of Freesias, mum’s favourite flower, and a beautiful photograph of her. As it was such a success (we raised over £500) I couldn’t wait to repeat it again the next year!”

“It is such a relaxing and easy event to organise – lots of cake and the kettle was constantly on!! I strongly urge you to hold your own event. It is perfect for a girly chat and an opportunity to indulge in lots of naughtiness. It is also a chance to talk about The Eve Appeal and help raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Go on – give it a go! My friends can’t wait for next year’s tea party.” Lorraine raised an amazing £500 at her tea party in 2015.

So go on, sign up to pour the tea, indulge in deliciousness and enjoy the company of your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours… Every penny raised from your tea party will help The Eve Appeal raise awareness and advance medical research.
