A Very British Afternoon Tea

Enjoy Afternoon Tea and raise money for EHAAT!

In previous years we’ve asked supporters to take part in our `A Very British Afternoon Tea’ each June to help us remain operational.

This year we realise that life is very different for all of us.

Although it may not be possible to get together in your school, workplace or group to enjoy some baking in a group, we have a suggestion.

If you are stuck at home, why not polish up your baking and decorating skills for a great cause?

You can then share pictures of your creations on social media using the hashtags #ratemybake #ratemycake or #avbat Get your friends to give you marks out of 10 and donate their rating to EHAAT. So, if they rate your bake as 6/10, they can give £6.

If you plan a tea party for later in the year, you’ll be able to show off your baking skills in person, and we can help with lots of great ideas when you are ready to do that. Just register with the Fundraising Team today to get your pack, using the button below.

Help to save lives, one cake at a time!

Former airlifted patient Kate Oliver is a great supporter of the Charity following her accident in 2010. Kate’s car accident resulted in severe head and chest injuries, and flat-lined twice before the Critical Care Team arrived on the air ambulance. Since the accident, Kate has become a great Volunteer and Fundraiser for the Charity and loves taking part in ‘A Very British Afternoon Tea’.

Kate’s top tip: Mix it up – don’t be afraid to add different ingredients to recipes to make them more to your taste!
