Cup of cheer for charities

Share this article

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 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 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.
