Getting your friends and family together for tea, coffee and cake is one of our favourite ways to raise money for Leukaemia UK. We even have a special tea party kit to help you with your fundraising to ensure your event is a success.

Hosting a successful tea and cake event does not need to be stressful. Here are some tips from us to get you started!

To receive your tea and cake event fundraising pack, simply email fundraising@leukaemiauk.org.uk


Choose a time and place to hold your event – this could be in school, at work or at home. Once this is decided, get in touch with your family, friends and colleagues and start spreading the word!

Get baking (or head to the shops!)

You don’t need to be a professional baker. This is all about having fun while raising funds for a great cause. Get your children involved or have competitions to see who can make the biggest cake. You can always go to the shops and buy a cake…we won’t tell if you don’t!

Extra fundraising ideas

There are a few other ways to increase your fundraising at your tea and cake event.

  • Why not have competitions and challenges, raffles and games?
  • Gift Aid forms are included as part of your tea and cake kit – this means an extra 25p for every £1 you give will be donated to our cause. Make sure anyone eligible fills this out.
  • Our team can also create a unique text giving code for your event which will allow anyone who isn’t carrying cash on them to still donate. Please get in touch with us if you would like us to do this for you.
Post-event success

After you have completed your tea and cake event, we would love to see any photos you have! You can send us these by email or you can tag us on social media. Use the #leukaemiauk hashtag or upload on your social media stories.

Following your event, you can send the funds you have raised for us by:

  • Making an online donation, please click here
