Hosting a Big Tea is a great reason to get together and raise money for your Hospice by doing something we all love – drinking tea and eating cake.
Big Tea: Bringing our community together
By hosting a Big Tea, whatever the size, you’ll be helping your Hospice to continue supporting local families like Elsie’s, who was cared for at the end of her life by staff at St Michael’s Hospice.
Elsie’s daughter Claire Trumper explains how St Michael’s Hospice cared for all her family at a time when they needed it most.
‘When it became clear that mum was reaching the end of her life, we all wanted her to be in a loving environment surrounded by friends and family.
‘Any fear dropped away as mum and the rest of the family got the very best compassionate nursing care. Mum’s final few days were full of laughter and even the odd sherry. We feel incredibly privileged but fully appreciate that we couldn’t have managed this without the help of the amazing team at the Hospice.’
Holding your Big Tea is easy
To get involved, contact our Big Tea Coordinator, Gaynor. She will then send you a pack to help you plan your event.
All you need to do is pick a date, choose a venue and invite your guests. Some of our other fundraising superstars ask friends, family and colleagues to promote their event using posters and social media to open their event up to the community.
With the date set and guests invited, you can look forward to enjoying a cuppa and a slice of something delicious while supporting a great cause.
So many local families benefit from the care provided by St Michael’s. So whether you want to prove your baking prowess or buy cakes from your favourite shop, you will be doing your bit. By asking guests to give a donation for the treats you serve, you’ll become one of our amazing supporters and help our nurses continue providing the best possible care.
It’s free and easy to register your interest in hosting a Big Tea.

‘One of my favourite memories of last summer was holding a St Michael’s Hospice Big Tea Party. Putting on a fun event gave me great sense of achievement and receiving my letter of thanks from the Hospice made me feel proud.’
