National disability charity, United Response, is holding a 4tea event at its office in Teddington on Friday 5th August, in a bid to raise money for the people it supports.

Taking place at 4 Latimer Road, Teddington, TW11 8QA, between 1-4pm, there will be a range of baked goods on offer, including cakes and brownies, as well as fun activities including ‘pin the cherry on the cake’, a cake decorating competition and a raffle with prizes donated from local businesses.

United Response supports people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health needs to live in the community.

This is one of many 4tea events being held throughout July and August to build on the existing success of 4tea, which began on United Response’s 40th anniversary year in 2013 as the flagship fundraising event.  

At the time, over 120 fundraising tea parties were held around the country to mark the occasion, and the parties proved so popular that the charity is offering the public the chance to organise their own.

This is an open event through which United Response hopes to build connections with people in the community.

All goodies at Teddington’s 4tea event will be baked by people the charity supports, staff and friends.

There will also be a display of artwork created by people the charity supports in its local art groups and handmade cards for sale.

Jesse Finlay, relief activities coordinator for United Response, said:

“We hope to elevate our profile in the local community, create relationships with local business and raise awareness and funds for our charity. It will be a fun day for everyone involved and a great way to make new friends in the community and share our work with them.”

The event is open to everyone, so please come along, no booking necessary! Donations towards the charity will be taken on the door.
