Tea party

Whether it's a sophisticated afternoon tea or a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, when it boils down to it, we're just glad you're helping us towards a world without brain tumours.

You can do a tea party anywhere you fancy – at home, at your local community centre, round a friends or in the park all you need to do is pick your venue, pick a date and invite your guests. You can charge an entry fee or ask for donations for any tea and biscuits your guests have.

Why not theme your tea party? You could ask everyone to turn up as their favourite Alice in Wonderland character and make it a Mad Hatter's Tea Party or you could ask everyone to come in their glad rags and hold a Ritz-style afternoon tea.

You could even play games like Tea Bag Toss where guests try to get the tea bag in the tea pot, kids might enjoy colouring in their own tea pot or you could see who can remember what item is missing with the tea tray memory game.

Gail and Chris held a fundraising tea party "We had a tea party at our local church to raise money and were amazed at the response from our friends and people we didn't even know who gave generously."

We can help get your par-tea started with our tips and resources to help your organise the perfect tea party including our 'Put the kettle on' free downloadable guide, printable invitations, posters and a quiz to keep your guests entertained.

Let us know about your fundraising plans and we can make sure you have everything you need for your tea-rrific tea party, such as banners, bunting or donation boxes.
