Tea party is 'great way to highlight fight against Alzheimer's'
23rd March 2009

A magazine is asking its readers to host a number of Victorian tea parties in order to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimer's Society, it has been revealed.

The charity noted that everyone can get involved in the Home Farmer-organised picnic-based tea parties in order to collect funds for the organisation through the sale of such food and drink products in a "truly delicious" way to support those with, or affected by, dementia.

An Alzheimer's Society spokesperson continued: "Home Farmer is featuring recipes for all kinds of breads, preserves, cooked and cured meats, drinks and some of the most delicious sweets imaginable, all of which can be used in the picnic."

It was added that given the approach of summer, it was becoming more of an attractive proposition for many hoping to get outdoors for the fundraising effort.

Last week, the charity also revealed that Marketing magazine had teamed up with the Contact Group, Human Race and the Marketing Communications Consultants Association to raise money through a triathlon, with proceeds also aiding the fight against Alzheimer's.
