I am writing to ask your readers with a sweet tooth to support people with epilepsy and get involved in National Tea and Cake Break on Friday 18 October. This event raises money for national charity Epilepsy Action, which aims to support the 6,000 people with epilepsy across Cambridgeshire.
The event is the perfect excuse for tea drinkers and cake lovers to get together with friends, family, colleagues or schoolmates and indulge! There are all sorts of ways to participate, from a cup of tea and a cupcake in your kitchen with friends to an office tea party or school bake sale.
Everyone who registers to hold a National Tea and Cake Break will receive a free pack. This includes teabags and biscuits to get your event off to a sweet start, as well as bunting and wonderfully crafty cupcake covers. It also features useful hints and tips and posters to promote your event.
This year, we have a delicious selection of new celebrity recipes for you to try out, featuring cakes and bakes from stars of past series’ of the Great British Bake Off. The recipes can be found at epilepsy.org.uk/recipes
Every year, around 32,000 people are diagnosed with epilepsy, that’s 87 every single day. Every penny raised from this event will help us to continue our vital work in supporting the 600,000 people with epilepsy across the UK.
To register for a free tea break fundraising pack, visit epilepsy.org.uk/teabreak or call the fundraising events team on 0113 210 8800.
