TWO charities are asking supporters to put the kettle on this month for a fund-raising cuppa.
The Stroke Association’s Sip for Stroke will see supporters hold tea and coffee mornings to raise money, while cafes are asked to make a donation for every hot drink sold.
An information pack with planning tips, fund-raising ideas, recipes, invitations and posters is available by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0191 492 6191.
Meanwhile, the Meningitis Trust is holding its Coffee Break event, based along the same lines.
Fund-raising packs are available at bit.ly/mtcoffeebreak or on 0845 120 4530.
The charity is also organising a Three Peaks Challenge for people to climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales.
Climbs take place from May 11 to 13, and July 6 to 8.
