Time for tea for children's charity
3:20pm Monday 12th May 2014 in News
A UK children’s charity is calling on residents and businesses in Herefordshire to take a break. Action Medical Research has launched its 2014 traditional cream teas in a box – delivering direct to doors throughout the land on June 19.
Hailed by previous customers as the “perfect treat in a box”, the organisers are urging all to treat themselves and indulge in one of their cream teas. So, schedule in a get together with friends and neighbours over a brew whilst doing your bit for charity.
This important, and truly scrumptious, annual fundraiser for the charity, represents the best of British; providing freshly baked scones and luxury products to guarantee the taste buds will tingle.
British celebrity chef Lesley Waters is this year supporting the Action Cream Teas. Well-known for her regular television appearances on Ready Steady Cook, Great Food Live and This Morning, Lesley is also a former head tutor of Leith's School of Food and Wine, author of several cookery books, a qualified fitness instructor and a mother of two. She says “I’m delighted to support Action Medical Research's Cream Teas delivery service. My own style is simple, fun and all about great food. And the action cream teas really are the perfect afternoon treat in a box – and what better way to indulge than with a cream tea for charity.”
“So why not get together with work mates, or a bunch of friends at home, and enjoy a luxury cream tea delivered to your door. Just put the kettle on, relax, have a chat and help raise vital funds for the children’s charity.”
Research is the key to saving many children from a lifetime of suffering. Yet surprisingly, medical research into conditions that devastate children’s lives is poorly funded. Action Medical Research is currently funding work around stillbirth, epilepsy, meningitis, cerebral palsy and brain cancer, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
Each Action Cream Tea box contains: two freshly baked scones, Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream, fresh strawberries, two small jars of strawberry jam from Tiptree, wrapped Yorkshire teabag, knife and serviette. Minimum order of 10, £6 per box, delivered by Parcelforce. Order online by June 6 at www.action.org.uk/time4tea.
