Ways to help us Fundraising Tea for Tinnitus June 2017 is Tea for Tinnitus month! Throughout June we’re asking you to ‘Put the Kettle on’ to raise funds for our fantastic Tea for Tinnitus campaign. In 2016, our very first Tea for Tinnitus you raised over £6,000 which was absolutely amazing! But we’d like to be able to help even more people through your efforts and this years target is £15,000. We really hope you will support us and help us even go beyond that. Take a look at our website www.teafortinnitus.co.uk for full details of the campaign. If 200 of you each hold a party that raises just £75, the target would be reached. But remember all amounts raised, no matter how small, are important in helping people with tinnitus. By putting the kettle on for tinnitus you will help someone who might be struggling with their tinnitus to access support through our helpline and email support, attend an event like our free to attend information days, have access to information leaflets and so much more. Having a tea party is a really simple way to get people talking about tinnitus and socialising in a relaxed atmosphere, as well as raising funds to help others. When you request our amazing fundraising pack we’ll send you some top tinnitus talking points and some simple fundraising ideas. We also have a nice big poster to help publicise your event, template bunting to put up, a money box to collect all your donations and some super stickers. In line with your requests from last year, most items are also now downloadable from www.teafortinnitus.co.uk/downloads, but can also be ordered by contacting us. It’s really easy to get involved and sign up, just go to www.teafortinnitus.co.uk, email email@example.com or call 0114 250 9933 and we can send you one of our lovely fundraising packs. You can also register your event on the Tea for Tinnitus website, or again, call the office and let us know where and when it will be happening, and we’ll promote as many as we can. Your party can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. A tea party for friends and family, a teddy bears picnic with your children, a tea and cake day at work or an event at a local venue. Why not come up with something really unusual? The possibilities are endless. When you hold your party, please upload a photo or short video to social media using the #T4Tinnitus hashtag and tag us in using @BritishTinnitus on Twitter, so we can share your images! It’s great to see what’s going on. And if you don’t use social media, simly send us a photograph after the event and we can highlight it in Quiet magazine or on our website. The whole BTA team are very excited about an even bigger Tea for Tinnitus and we will be sharing our recipes and bake photos on the Tea for Tinnitus website during April and May. Maybe you could give our recipes a try…we’d love to see your photos of how they turn out! If you have any questions or need any help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We can’t make this a success without your help – so we look forward to hearing from you and thank you so much for your support.
