Could you organise an Afternoon Tea?

Host an afternoon tea and help us support families to buy fresh fruit & veg.

Throwing your own afternoon tea doesn’t mean you need to be an expert in the kitchen. There are a whole host of delicious treats that are quick and easy to make. We’ve got some tasty cake recipes below which include some fruit & veg!

Knead some top tips for Afternoon Tea success? You’re in the right place.

When & Where?
During your office lunch break, at your church or simply on a Saturday afternoon. Choose a time & location when lots of people will be free to come along.

Spoons at the ready!
Organisation is key to hosting a successful afternoon tea, so start recruiting early when it comes to finding your bakers and sandwich makers. The more treats and delicious savoury bakes you offer, the more money you’re likely to raise.

How much?
Keep things simple. It’s easier all around to make sure that all your guests know how much it costs to attend your afternoon tea; we suggest £20, or maybe a bit more if a bottle of bubbly is involved!
