A Chari-tea Party

Thursday September 22nd is White Stuff’s National Wear a Tea Cosy on Your Head Day. Each White Stuff shop supports its own local charity and all are geared towards helping disadvantaged children and young people.

Loads of celebrities have got involved; Henry Holland, John Rocha, June Brown (AKA June Brown) and, most recently, model Jacquetta Wheeler and Editor of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman.

I hosted a ‘Chari-tea Party’ at my house last Saturday, raising £45 for the White Stuff Foundation.

There was a prize draw (to win a goodie bag), I did tailor-made manicures and there was a jumble sale too. We didn’t end up drinking much tea - more G&Ts! I invented a cocktail for the day, the Teacosy Tipple, which included raspberries, elderflower cordial, mint, gin and tonic.

Guests were encouraged to bring a teatime treat and a donation.

If you’d like to host a chari-tea party of your own, get some tips (and a downloadable invitation here):

You can donate your fundraising money to the charity here:
