National Cream Tea day is on 25 June 2021, and to celebrate we're inviting you to host a delightful Devon cream tea afternoon for your friends, neighbours, family or colleagues at work to help raise vital funds for our service.  

We're anticipating our busiest Summer ever and now more than ever, you can help in the most enjoyable way! 

For the whole of June, we're encouraging our supporters to get into the open air (and sunshine - we hope!) and enjoy tucking into some delicious cream teas.  There are lots of extra ways to raise funds while enjoying your afternoon tea, why not hold a bake sale of tasty scones baked by your guests or a ‘Guess the weight of the cake’ competition too?  Now is the perfect time to enjoy being together again while helping to support our service. 

So, whether it’s with a traditional tea party, a picnic, or baking a batch of scones to enjoy with a glass of fizz, treat yourselves this summer and raise important funds that will enable us to keep responding throughout the busy Summer weeks & months ahead!

Let us help with the preparation

To help you get cream-tea ready, we've put together some party essentials, including Her Majesty The Queen's very own scone recipe courtesy of the royal bakers of Buckingham Palace!

Please download all the bits and pieces below - as well as a fundraising pack with heaps of top tips and ways to fundraise, there are invitations for your guests, along with a poster to help you to advertise your cream tea and bunting to add some decoration to the garden fence!

Don't forget to look out for our social media posts too so that you can share the news of your own Heli Cream Tea on your social media pages and attract that extra support from your friends.

A great chance for you to celebrate...at Lympstone Manor!
