Put the Kettle on and plan your Paws for Tea Party

Paws for Tea logo

Organising and hosting a charity tea party is great fun and couldn’t be easier to do. We have got loads of ideas and resources to help you make your tea party a success.

Plan your day, choose a date (it doesn’t have to be on 15 May) and find a venue. It could be anywhere from your home or garden, at a school, work place or even the local village hall, community centre or social club.

Are you going to bake your own treat or stock up from the supermarket? Do you have a friend or relative who could help you with some baking? Don’t stop at the tea, cake and natter! Think of other things you could do at your party. Why not include a small raffle or use our competition form to make a little extra. Blue Cross is one of the nation’s oldest and best loved pet charities so helping to raise awareness and funds through your “Paws for Tea” party helps spread the love.

However big or small your charity Tea Party is every penny raised will be giving pets a happy, healthy future.

Why hold a Blue Cross Tea Party?

30,000 poorly animals helped last year

As one of the UK’s leading the Blue Cross looks after tens of thousands of animals. Did you know that more than 100,000 stray dogs are picked up by local authorities each year and thousands are put to sleep because no homes can be found for them? 

Last year Blue Cross took in more than 8,000 homeless pets and looked after 30,000 poorly animals. But more pets are being needlessly killed, badly kept and abandoned. We’ve seen 40 per cent more stray and abandoned animals compared to two years ago. We need your support now so that we can help as many pets in need as possible.
