Nothing stops a nation of tea lovers from coming together over a cuppa! Small or large, socially distanced or on a video call – you can make a difference at home or at work by hosting a tea party for Guide Dogs.

Every day 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. When someone loses their sight, we're here to make sure they don't lose their freedom as well, something we are all too familiar with. Every penny you raise with your tea party will go towards helping us provide life-changing services for people with sight loss.

Host your own tea party

Home-baked or store-bought, virtual cuppas or garden gatherings – do it your way and use your tea party to connect over your favourite brew – and cake of course! 

Our tea party pack is filled with everything you need from step-by-step guides, to colourful invites, bunting, cake flags to decorate your sweet treats and even a tea quiz.

Ramp up the fun with your own Showstopper Baking Challenge and award a prize for the best Victoria sponge, or maybe give everyone the chance to dress up by picking a fancy-dress theme they will love. 


Going virtual?

If you’re going virtual, we’ve got puppy Zoom backgrounds and you can add an extra special ingredient to your virtual cuppas by inviting one of our speakers to join your video call. 

Our VIP speaker spots last 15 minutes, and you might even get a surprise four-legged guest popping into your party to say hello with them! Simply tick the speaker box on the registration form and we’ll organise your very own tea party VIP visitor.

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 guests can remain safe while having fun and making a difference.

Every penny counts

All the money you raise with your tea party will help people living with sight loss lead the life they choose. 

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.
