A Very British Afternoon Tea

Enjoy Afternoon Tea and raise money for EHAAT this summer!

With restrictions being gradually lifted we know that by the summer we will all be ready to celebrate the work of EHAAT and get together with our nearest and dearest. So come on team have a brew and support our crew!

Our clinical team have continued to provide their life-saving service, 24/7 throughout the pandemic and to fund this we need your help more than ever.

When and where it is safe to do so, and following the latest government guidelines, why not invite your friends and family to join you. It’s a great way to re-connect with those you haven’t been able to see during the lockdown and help a great local cause.

Can you have a brew in aid of our crew?

Having a break to have a cuppa and getting together with people is something we have all missed. Our crew and supporters have always loved to have a brew. Take a look at some of our supporters and crew’s Afternoon Tea photos from over the years!

Kate’s Story

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!
