Host your own Great Guide Dogs Tea Party

In recent months our ability to be there for people with sight loss across the UK has been severely impacted and we need your help more than ever to raise vital funds that will ensure we can continue to provide our life-changing services. 

When you host your own Great Guide Dogs Tea Party any money raised will support thousands of people with sight loss to lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives. 

Home-baked or bought, virtual or socially distanced – we’ve never needed you more to share a cuppa, have a few laughs and enjoy all your favourite sweet treats and of course, we’ll support you every step of the way!   

We want everyone to be safe so please continue to follow local government guidelines so we can all stay safe and well.

Need some tea party inspiration?

Here are some ideas to help you plan your own event:

  • Baking fun – invite friends to join your own Baking Challenge with your friends, families or co-workers.  Ask for a donation for everyone joining in the challenge, share on social media and set up a Just Giving page for extra donations. Hold a virtual voting competition on Facebook or even live on Zoom!
  • Cuppa and a catch up with your co-workers – with so many people working from home, why not organise a virtual tea party with your entire team?
  • Zoom parties – connect virtually and share a cuppa and slice of cake with your girlfriends or perhaps friends you haven’t seen for a while? Halloween and Christmas are fast approaching so maybe even make it dress up or themed for extra fun?

Please remember that whatever you plan we want you to stay safe. Make sure you are following the latest government advice in your local area to ensure you and all your tea party guest can remain safe while having fun and making a difference.

Every penny counts

We appreciate that times are difficult at the moment, but for people with sight loss, social isolation can be their everyday. Any money raised through  fundraising will help them feel less alone, now and in the future.

Priya's story

Although Priya was diagnosed with Retinitis pigmentosa in primary school, it was not until her daughter Lucy was born that she faced the challenge of adjusting to life as a new mum with a vision impairment.  

She'd spent her life up to that point trying to manage and conceal her vision impairment.  

Her first guide dog Sidney gave her the confidence to go out and do everyday things, like picking Lucy up from school.

Donate your cuppa

We appreciate that times are really difficult at the moment, but for people with sight loss, social isolation can be their everyday.

So, whether you enjoy a builder’s brew or a loose leaf, donate the cost of your cuppa today and help them feel less alone, now and in the future. Thank you!
