Time for Tea 2018 poster

Why does it matter?

We provide learning, care and support for over 1,500 children, young people and adults. By hosting a Time for Tea event, you can help us to continue to achieve our vision of enabling all people with a learning disability to live a life that makes sense to them.

Your Time for Tea event will make a difference.

  • Getting together with your friends and neighbours for a catch up and a slice of cake and raising £25 for MacIntyre can buy a Story Sequencer for someone we support, enabling them to create timelines, visual stories and schedules.
  • Selling 80 cupcakes at £1 each in your village hall will buy a sensory tent for a person we support in one of our local services.
  • Hosting a baking competition or a tea party at your office with hot drinks and cake and raising £200 can buy musical instruments or a camera, supporting children, young people or adults communicate with music or document their achievements.

How can you get involved?

Hosting a Time for Tea event is so simple and we’ve got all of the resources you need to make it a success. Download our posters, recipes, invitations and top tips below or get in touch and we’ll send you a Time for Tea pack in the post.

You can host your Time for Tea event wherever you like: in your local school, your office, your village hall, at home, in a park (fingers crossed for good weather!) or anywhere that takes your fancy.

Why not have a tea party with a twist and host a baking or cupcake decorating competition, or ask your guests to guess how many tea bags are in a jar?
