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 along: 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 www.eveappeal.org.uk/promotion
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 www.eveappeal.org.uk/teamaterials
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
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.
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 www.eveappeal.org.uk/guidelines
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 www.eveappeal.org.uk/guidelines
Have Fun and Take Photos
We would love to see any photos you have taken, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on social media using @eveappeal for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #MakeTimeforTea
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 www.eveappeal.org.uk/payin
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 0100 or by emailing email@example.com – we are more than happy to help.
