Time To Bake

Join our recipe for success and help us raise valuable funds for Demelza Hospice Care for Children during Children’s Hospice Week.


Hosting a butterfly tea party is a great opportunity to get together with your friends, family and colleagues, whilst raising vital funds to help seriously ill babies, children and young people, and their families to get the support they need to make the most of their precious time together.

It’s really simple to organise a butterfly tea party. You can make it as small or as large as you like; a quick cuppa with close friends or a day long garden party.
Here are just a few ingredients for you to enjoy your butterfly tea party and raise money for seriously ill children, whether you're holding an event for two people or 20.


Friends, family and colleagues

A butterfly tea party at home:

Invite your friends and family round to enjoy a vintage cream tea with scones, jam and cream, and a cup of tea for a small fee.

Children's tea party:

Invite your friends and their children to a butterfly tea party for a small donation, and have fun decorating paper plates and butterfly cut-outs.

Tea breaks at work:

Ask your colleagues to bake a cake in advance. Have a cake tasting competition and ask people to pay to sample the entries.
