What’s the strangest place you’ve ever had a cream tea?
Do you share… or is it all yours?
Children’s charity Action Medical Research, which will be delivering delicious cream teas all over the country in July, wants to know all about your cream tea habits in their new survey. Share your cream tea secrets at surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Actioncreamtea and you could be in with a chance of winning a copy of Paddington Here and Now, signed by the author Michael Bond.
The UK-wide charity is calling for the nation to take a break this summer and enjoy a unique Action Cream-Teas-in-a-box which will see the perfect afternoon pick-me-up delivered directly to homes, workplaces and schools on Friday 1 July 2016.
Last year Action Medical Research raised more than £60,000 as it sent out more than 10,000 cream-teas-in-a-box packed by its army of volunteers. In total, the charity sent out 20,740 scones which, if split open and laid end to end, would stretch over 4.1km; 10,370 Yorkshire teabags, enough to make 2,593 litres of tea; 871kg of Tiptree strawberry jam; and 415kg of Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream, made from nearly 11,000 pints of milk, all neatly packaged up complete with 10,370 knives, serviettes and thank you notes!
For 2016, the mouth-watering Action Cream Teas - which come in a box priced just £6 - will again contain two freshly baked scones perfect for piling high with oozing strawberry jam and Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream, ready to be washed down with a refreshing cup of Yorkshire Tea.
And Action Medical Research is calling on YOU to get together with friends or colleagues to put the kettle on, tuck in to a tasty cream tea and help raise funds for sick babies and children.
Research is the key to saving many children from a lifetime of suffering, yet surprisingly, medical research into conditions that devastate children’s lives is poorly funded.
For more than 60 years Action Medical Research has helped pioneer treatments and ways to prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and across the world. Research they’ve funded has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop ultrasound in pregnancy, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirths.
It is currently funding research into meningitis, Down syndrome, epilepsy and premature birth, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
