Cream Tea, Anyone?

Get the kettle on! The childrens charity Action Medical Research are having a cream tea!

Action Medical Research have launched their 2014 cream teas in a box! How perfect! And even better, the traditional cream teas will be delivered in a box, right to your door, on Thursday 19th June!

So, let's rally our friends and family together for a cup of tea and a "perfect treat in a box" as it was hailed by previous customers. The best thing is, it's a great excuse for a get together because it's all for charity!

This important annual fundraiser for the charity provides freshly baked scones and luxury products to cater to everyone's tastes!

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.”

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.

Each Action Cream Tea box contains: two freshly baked scones, Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream,fresh strawberries, two small jars of strawberry jam from Tiptree, wrapped Yorkshire teabag, knife and serviette. Minimum order of 10, £6 per box, delivered by Parcelforce. Order online by Friday 6 June 2014 at
