Raise a cuppa

Raising money in support of The Christie charity can be fun and easy. And one simple way you can support cancer patients is by holding your own Cuppa for The Christie event.

A Cuppa for The Christie is where you get together with a group of friends, family members or colleagues to have a brew, a slice of cake and a catch up. Every attendee donates a small amount to The Christie charity – so you can fundraise while having fun.

Planning a Cuppa for The Christie

Plan a date and time for your Cuppa for The Christie. Make sure you tell your guests when this is so they can book it in the diary.

Decide if you’re hosting your event in person or on a video call. A video chat is a great way to involve people you might not be able to see at this time, especially older relatives.

On the day of the event, make sure you’ve got coffee, tea and some cake and biscuits in. Collect donations from every guest. A suggested amount is £3, but we’ll let you decide how much you want to people to give.

Here are a few ideas for putting on your own Cuppa for The Christie event.

  • Host a Cuppa for The Christie to catch up with your colleagues. You can do this in the office or if you’re working from home, check in via a video call.
  • Enjoy a brew and a slice of cake at home with your family. Want to include family members you can’t be with at this time? Video call them during your Cuppa for The Christie so they can join in on the fun.
  • Have a Cuppa for The Christie with your friends – whether that’s meeting in a local café or seeing everyone on a video chat.

Don’t forget to take a photo of your Cuppa for The Christie and share it on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #cuppachristie. We’d love to see how you’re supporting us!
