During the month of February 2017, we are inviting our wonderful supporters to host a tea party in their local communities across Scotland to raise awareness of Huntington’s disease and much needed funds for people living with HD. We want to make this year our biggest tea party event and your support will help make a difference.
This is an ideal opportunity to turn your hidden talents into hosting a tea party and getting together with family, friends and colleagues. You can host your tea party at home or in a local venue helping to raise awareness to the wider community.
One of our previous tea party hosts said “My family and friends all had a wonderful time, eating loads of lovely cakes and raising money for HD” Denise Easton, Fundraising Volunteer, Highland
Hosting a tea party is simple, great fun and you’ll be making a huge difference to those who really need our support.
We have lots of great ideas to SHAre to help make your tea party a success. Did you know by inviting people to “SHAre tea for HD” you will be:
