“I’m absolutely thrilled to be launching our Cream Tea Campaign for a second year running. It was so popular last year and what better way to celebrate the summer and the great outdoors! Whether you’re treating a friend, colleague or yourself, we hope many people will place an order and support us so that we can help even more older and vulnerable people in our communities.” Chief Executive, Helen Rice
We are delighted to announce that our popular Cream Tea delivery service is back for the second year running - in time for all your picnics, garden parties and long awaited get-togethers with friends and loved ones. Why not treat yourself, your family or friends to a fabulous home made cream tea this summer? Or if you’d like to make a really special gesture, why not order a cream tea for an older vulnerable person in Sussex?
Our home made cream teas are the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, seeing an old friend, treating work colleagues or just as a little pick-me-up. So, why not indulge around National Cream Tea Day (25 June), National Picnic Week (22 to 27 June) or during National Picnic Month this July?

We ask for a minimum donation of £7.00 per Cream Tea box (which includes delivery to addresses in Sussex) but if you would like to specify your own amount in order to add a little extra to your donation, we'd be extremely grateful.
All money raised will go towards supporting vulnerable older people in our communities, including those we have been helping throughout the Covid-19 crisis with tailored support such as doorstep deliveries and befriending calls and meal deliveries.
Many older people are now dealing with the repercussions of a decline in physical and mental wellbeing due to pandemic restrictions, as well as anxiety about returning to life outside of lockdown. Your donation can help us to continue supporting them so that everyone has someone to turn to during these extraordinary times.
Last year we made thousands of boxes, all packed by our army of volunteers and delivered across the West Sussex, Brighton & Hove area. This year, with your help, we want to do even better!
