Tea with me

Thank you to the Chamber for the amazing cake!

We are asking anyone and everyone to hold a ‘Tea with me’ tea party in aid of Mencap Liverpool. ‘Tea with me’ is such a fun and easy way to raise money for people with a learning disability whilst catching up with friends, family or uni colleagues. We’ll help you with everything you need to hold your tea party, including posters and invitations. All you need to do is invite people along and ask them to donate a sum to cover their attendance or cakes consumed! We have a ‘Tea with me’ pack to help get you started and give you some ideas.
