Let's get Virtually TEAgether and help families stay together, close to their seriously ill children in hospital
Tue 6th Apr 2021 - Fri 31st Dec 2021
Have a Virtual TEAgether and support families to be together.
Each year over 6,ooo families rely on us for accommodation to be together while their sick child is being treated at a specialist NHS hospital. Now, more than ever, it’s so important to keep in touch with each other, and what better way than to host a virtual TEAgether with friends and family!
We’re asking you to set up a virtual call with friends, loved ones, or colleagues, and donate the price of your normal cuppa and tasty treat, not only will you have a great time you will help us to keep families by their child’s bedside in hospital. Whether it’s your weekly catch up with a friend, a group coffee morning, or an evening get together, your support counts.
How to get together for your virtual tea party
Choose a date and time that everybody can make. Set up a call through your chosen platform, Zoom/Microsoft Teams/Facebook/ Skype to name a few then send the invite out to who you want to join you. Dig out your best mug and make sure there’s cake or biscuits to hand as you countdown, and if you really want to impress decorate the background with bunting. Encourage everyone to donate to the ‘Let’s Get TEAgether’ Just giving page the amount that they would normally spend on a beverage and slice of cake, (after all filling your own kettle is a lot cheaper!) and support families who need to be near their seriously ill child in hospital. We have provided a ‘Let’s Get TEAgether’ menu to help with your event and give everyone attending a suggested amount for what they have chosen to enjoy during the call. Why not include some virtual games too e.g. quiz or crafts and ask everyone to give a suggested donation to take part.
After the event, show lots of love and appreciation to everyone who joined you at your virtual tea break by thanking them. Don’t forget to share photos on social media using the hashtags, we would love to see your ‘Get TEAgethers’.
We have produced a leaflet for putting on a Virtual TEAgether, with some great ideas that will make it fun and entertaining for all. Download your leaflet.
