- Celebrity chefs endorse tea-party challenge
A host of celebrity chefs are supporting national disability charity, Motability, by calling on people across the UK to hold a tea party and raise funds for disabled people.
Tea Party Week is being held between 14 – 20 August and is hoping to raise thousands of pounds as people get together for a cuppa and a slice of cake. The money raised will be used to adapt cars for people with disabilities.
The campaign is backed by a host of famous faces who have created a range of delicious recipes for guests to enjoy. Amongst those providing recipes are Jane Asher, Mary Berry, Ross Burden, Michael Caines, Keith Floyd, Paul Rankin, Brian Turner and Phil Vickery.
TV chef Ross Burden said: "There's nothing more enjoyable than sitting around with your friends and enjoying food together. And here’s a great opportunity to do just that and support a good cause at the same time. So come on, get your friends and family together and host your own tea party. You don't need an excuse to indulge your sweet tooth but if you did, this would be a great one!"
Anyone that wants to take part can simply invite their friends, family and neighbours around for a cuppa, and ask them to make a donation in return. Cake recipes, tea party invitations and donation forms can be downloaded by visiting the fundraising pages at www.motability.co.uk.
