The Springboard Charity

Afternoon Tea Week 10th - 16th August 2020

Have you been perfecting your baking skills in lockdown? Now is the time to share them with your friends and family! The Springboard Charity are inspiring the UK to cut the crusts off their sandwiches and top their scones with clotted cream and jam in order to host an event during Afternoon Tea Week (10th – 16th August 2020) whilst fundraising for the charity via JustGiving.

Springboard’s Afternoon Tea Week has the support of Prue Leith, CBE, who says “Springboard is a great charity, supporting the hospitality indstry and helping young and unemployed people, including those that have recently lost their jobs, of which there are far too many at the moment. If you’d like to help, how about joining in with Springboard’s Afternoon Tea Week fundraiser? It will be a lot of fun and do a lot of good.”

Prue has also made her own exciting contribution to the campaign, adding “Check out my highly alcoholic tea-time cocktail. Why not? Teatime can slip so easily into the cocktail hour, can’t it?”

There are several ideas on Springboard’s website of how you can fundraise as part of Afternoon Tea Week event, from having a socially distanced garden or street party, to a cake sale or even a ‘friendly’ bake off with your colleagues! Prue’s cocktail recipe and a video of ‘How to make the perfect cup of tea’ by Tea Expert Jane Pettigrew are also available on Springboard’s website. Visit: www.springboard.uk.net/ATW for the full details.

Springboard’s Afternoon Tea Week is proudly sponsored by Pladis, Hellmann’s, Colman’s, Premier Foods and Tetley. Michelle Jee, Tetley’s Senior Brand Manager, commented; “We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting Springboard’s Afternoon Tea Week. Not only is the charity initiative a fantastic way to raise much needed funds for our colleagues across the hospitality industry, but also to unite the nation in enjoying a cuppa and a community celebration during these challenging times. Cheers to that!”

Funds raised as part of Springboard’s Afternoon Tea Week campaign will help The Springboard Charity to transform the futures of young and vulnerable people in crisis or poverty.
