A UK children’s charity is calling on the UK workforce to ‘take a break’ and help make a difference to sick babies and children’s‘ lives in the process.
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. Action Medical Research is currently funding work around stillbirth, epilepsy, meningitis, cerebral palsy and brain cancer, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
Action Medical Research has today launched its 2014 ‘traditional cream teas in a box’ campaign in which it will be delivering direct to workplaces throughout the land on Thursday 19 June.
Hailed by previous customers as the “perfect treat in a box”, the organisers are urging all to treat themselves and indulge in one of their Cream Teas, and schedule in that well deserved tea break to bond with colleagues over a brew whilst doing your bit for charity.
This important, and truly scrumptious, annual fundraiser for the charity, represents the Best of British; providing freshly baked scones and luxury products to guarantee the taste buds will tingle.
British celebrity chef Lesley Waters is this year supporting the Action Cream Teas. Well-known for her regular television appearances on Ready Steady Cook, Great Food Live and This Morning, Lesley is also a former head tutor of Leith’s School of Food & Wine, author of several Cookery Books, a qualified Fitness Instructor and a mother of two! She says:
“I’m delighted to support Action Medical Research’s Cream Teas delivery service. My own style is simple, fun and all about great food. And the Action Cream Teas really are the perfect afternoon treat in a box – and what better way to indulge than with a Cream Tea for charity!”
“So why not get together with work mates, or a bunch of friends at home, and enjoy a luxury Cream Tea delivered to your door. Just put the kettle on, relax, have a chat and help raise vital funds for the children’s charity.”
