There’s no party like a tea party...

Posted on 3rd February 2014

Chester residents are invited to join a traditional tea-party, held by a group of Events Management students from the University of Chester, to raise money for charity.

We are really looking forward to hosting this event. We have put a lot of effort into organising it so we are excited to see it all come together.

Communi-Tea, hosted by the group Innova Events, will be held at Northgate Bistro, behind Northgate Church on Saturday, February 22. The event is aimed at all age groups and has activities for all to enjoy, including a raffle, music, quizzes, face painting and a craft table. All the money raised from ticket sales and activities at the event will go to Miles of Smiles, a Chester charity which sends terminally ill, sick or disabled children on a holiday of a lifetime to a dream destination.

Each trip costs about £40,000, so Miles of Smiles needs as much help as possible to enable the children to go and Communi-Tea aims to raise as much as possible to benefit more youngsters.

Attendees can help by buying a ticket, either in advance for £6 or for £7 on the door from 1pm till 4pm. Children under 12 are £3 both in advance and on the door, and children under the age of three are free.

A ticket includes unlimited tea or squash for the children and a selection of sandwiches of your choice and cakes. It will be a great opportunity to meet new people and for generations to join together, and enjoy food and drink at a great price.

Becky Small, Team Leader of Innova Events, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting this event. We have put a lot of effort into organising it so we are excited to see it all come together. The team at Miles of Smiles has been brilliant and we just want to raise as much money as possible for them whilst also making more people aware of what a great charity it is.”

Sue Thomas, Chair of Miles of Smiles, said: “We were very eager to work with Becky and her team because they had some great ideas for the event and it is a great opportunity for us as a local charity to make more people aware of us and what we do. We greatly appreciate every penny and all money raised goes towards the next trip which will make many countless children’s dreams come true.”
