This spring, the women’s gynae cancer charity The Eve Appeal is encouraging you to get together with friends, family and colleagues to host your very own tea party or bake sale. Not only is hosting a coffee morning-style event a great chance to catch up with friends, family and neighbours, it's also a great way to fundraise for Make Time for Tea - the fundraising initiative from The Eve Appeal which helps raise awareness and support those with gynaecological cancers. Keen to host your own event? Amazing! Here are The Eve Appeal's top tips for making it a success:
  1.  Choose your venue – host your event at home, work, school or your local community centre
  2.  Invite friends, family and colleagues – put up posters and send out invites via email, social media or WhatsApp. For more details click here
  3. Decorate your event – the Eve Team have a great range of materials available including balloons, bunting templates, collections boxes and pin badges. Download or let the Eve Team know what materials you would like via their materials page
  4. Bake it – try something new or bake a classic, and don’t forget to ask if anyone can help and bring a bake along, it doesn’t matter if they pop to the shops and fake it, the main thing is that everyone is there to have fun and support a great cause
  5. Add some extra fundraising activities – organising an activity for your event helps to get everyone involved. You could ask guests to Guess the Weight of the Cake, hold a Tea Tasting session or organise a Raffle. Find out more here
  6. Have fun – don’t forget to enjoy your event, make sure you take the time to sit down, have a cuppa and a slice of cake, and talk to your guests
  7. Talk #gynae – whether you do a short speech about The Eve Appeal or hand out leaflets, raising awareness of all five gynae cancers and their signs and symptoms is so important
  8. Say thank you – thank everyone for supporting your event and for their donations or raffle prize contributions. Let everyone know how much they helped to raise!
  9. Collect the funds and bank – pay in the money you have raised as soon as possible so The Eve Appeal can make best use of it. Click here for details on how to bank
It is that simple and so much fun!
