Join Joanna Lumley and Horatio’s Garden charity this June by taking up your teapots, baking your favourite cake and hosting your very own Fabulous Summer Tea Party!
Horatio’s Garden are asking supporters to hold a tea party anytime throughout the month of June in order to raise vital funds for the charity, which creates and nurtures beautiful gardens in NHS spinal injury centres to support everyone affected by spinal injury.
Last year the nationwide tea party raised an incredible £30,000, but this year Horatio’s Garden need your help to make this the most successful Fabulous Summer Tea Party yet. The beauty of the fundraising event is that you can hold a tea party wherever you like, be that in your homes, gardens, at work, on the beach, or anywhere else you can think of!
Horatio’s Garden would love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved and are especially keen to encourage community groups, sports clubs and workplaces to join in with the fun. Having seen how much people enjoyed last year’s event, the charity can safely say that getting to know your neighbours, fellow sports enthusiasts and colleagues over a good brew, whilst raising money for a wonderful cause, is a great way to spend a summer afternoon.
To date the charity have opened gardens in NHS spinal injury centres in Salisbury, Glasgow, Stoke Mandeville and Oswestry. Work has recently begun on the charity’s fifth project at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, whilst their sixth project will be in Cardiff at University Hospital, Llandough.
By simply hosting a tea party this summer, you’ll be supporting both the charity’s current gardens and projects, as well as their vision to have a thriving Horatio’s Garden in all the 11 NHS spinal injury centres throughout the UK.
