This is one of the easiest fundraisers to organise, it can be as small or as large an event as you like. Hold it at home, at work or at a venue of your choice - local church or village hall, school etc.  Everyone loves a cuppa and some cake!

Here is a step-by-step guide to help get you started... • Set a date, a beginning and end time
• Find a place to hold the event - home, work or at a venue?
• Are you going to run a raffle? If so, ask friends/colleagues for donations
• A ‘decorate a tea cup’ competition is great for getting children involved (BRACE can give you a template)
• What help will you need? e.g. tea makers, raffle ticket sellers, bakers
• Ask friends and family for help
• Local supermarkets can be very generous and donate cakes, tea, coffee and sugar
• Cakes – put out a request for people to bake/bring cakes

Finally: advertise, let everyone know you are holding the event!
