Big Chocolate Tea is back. Host a tea party or bake sale to celebrate our 40th birthday

In celebration of our 40th birthday, Big Chocolate Tea is back!

It’s the most delicious way to raise vital funds and keep families together when they need it most.


How to Host a Big Chocolate Tea

What? You could organise a bake sale, host a garden tea party, challenge your friends or colleagues to a bake-off or arrange a street party.

Where? You can hold a Big Chocolate Tea at home, in the office, at school, in a park or your garden – anywhere you can consume delicious treats!

When? Big Chocolate Tea is running throughout June 2022 so once you’ve decided how you’re going to help us celebrate and have lots of chocola-tea fun, pick a day in June, invite everyone you know with a sweet tooth and let us know your plans by emailing


Alternative Ideas

Bake & deliver

Struggling to pin down your friends, family or colleagues for just one day? You could pick a couple of days in June that suit you, create a sweet treats menu, take orders and then bake and deliver your creations to the recipients in exchange for a donation.

No choc marathon

In preparation for your Big Chocolate Tea event, why not give up chocolate or tea for a month prior to your event? Ask your friends and family to sponsor you to help raise a little extra.

Virtual tea party

Do you have friends and family spread across the globe? Why not gather everyone together over Zoom or FaceTime for a natter with a cup of tea and a slice of cake? Rather than collecting donations, you could ask attendees to purchase a virtual slice of cake, available in our online shop.
