Put the tea in team

19 May 2017

Why not get the team together for a midweek catch-up or Friday treat? Don't forget to invite the boys too!

Our Tea with the Girls campaign encourages our supporters to hold a tea party to raise funds for life-saving blood cancer research and patient support. A great way you can get involved is to hold a tea party at your workplace.

Getting colleagues together for a midweek catch-up or Friday treat is a great way to promote teamwork and wellbeing. Many organisations also have a budget for charitable giving and will happily offer to match your fundraising total or make a bulk donation – so it’s always worth asking your employer first.

Ready, steady, bake!

You could hold a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bake) sale and ask colleagues to make a donation per slice. Or why not create some healthy competition with a bake off? Take the pressure off for those who are less culinarily-competent by making it a team effort – and sell the (hopefully!) tasty treats in the staff room afterwards.

Spread the word

Here's a colourful poster to help you promote your party. To save or print the poster, right click on the image below.

Top tips for your workplace tea party

  • Don’t forget to spread the word in your team meetings and on the intranet too so everyone knows to bring some coins in
  • For a fun ice-breaker, you could put colleagues into small teams to test their baking knowledge – check out our quiz on our Tea with the Girls webpage
  • Hosting Tea with the Girls with friends and family? Why not bring in any leftovers the next day and ask colleagues for a donation

We’ve created a fundraising kit with everything you need to make tea and make a difference: from printable bunting to posters.
