If you’re a regular DGHUK supporter, you’ll know all about The Great DGH British Tea Party. In 2021 it was one of the highlights of our charity calendar and came right in the middle of the Covid pandemic. It is back with a difference. This time we hope it will be a special month-long festival of events and activities, both here and abroad, all dedicated to helping our children at Dr Graham’s Homes in Kalimpong, India.
What’s the main aim of the ‘Tea Party’?
It has three key purposes: 1 - To unite the DGHUK family, wherever they are in the world. Each week for a month, we’ll be holding an online Tea Party via Zoom, attended (hopefully) by supporters from all over the UK and further afield. It’s a chance to gather together with other supporters and to hear inspiring stories about DGH. 2 - To spread the word about Dr Graham’s Homes, and to encourage others to get involved in supporting children there. 3 - To raise as much money as we can to give the sponsored children at Dr Graham’s Homes a Future and a Hope. Our 2021 Tea Party raised an incredible £46,000. However, whatever we can achieve together this time will be wonderful, as it will help us meet the ever increasing costs of supporting our children and their education at Dr Graham’s Homes.
When is it happening?
Throughout February 2024.
