United Response’s nationwide tea party kicks off in just one month! To celebrate, we’re entering everyone who signs up to hold a tea party, by 30th June, into a draw to win a luxury Moo and Two tea hamper. 

4tea is about bringing together friends, family and neighbours to help raise funds for United Response, by holding a tea party. Now, we’re asking our loyal supporters like you to get involved by holding your own tea party. You’ll get access to a free 4tea pack, invites, posters and every party will have their own unique text donation code to help raise those extra pennies.

To get you inspired, here’s a sneak preview of several 4tea party plans already underway across the country:

One of the first parties is taking place on the 1st June in St Anne’s Road East. It will offer plenty of tea, biscuits and cake to friends, neighbours. Members of the local YMCA will also be attending for a planting party! They plan to get everyone involved with the people we support to plant seeds to grow vegetables in the garden that they hope to be able to sell next year.

In North Cotswold, staff at United Response are making use of a space in their office to have afternoon tea whilst selling raffle tickets to their guests.

Our Station Road organisers are putting on a Country and Western themed garden party with face painting and a BBQ.

Richmond Community Support party will take place aboard a boat during learning disability week, where guests will enjoy tea, cakes and even a disco.

In Easingwold, organisers are planning the highest of high teas - an extravagant ball for the community with a local DJ – a great excuse to dress up.

And if a ball and a riverboat party wasn’t enough, the Woodlands school in Surrey are putting on a talent show for the children to take part in. They will also create a 4tea stall at the event to sell cakes.
