Tea and cake has always been the perfect match, but how can you improve on perfection? Tea and cake for a good cause of course!

Meningitis UK are on a mission to fund cutting edge research into developing a vaccine for meningitis B. This causes almost 90% of all causes of in the UK. There is currently no vaccine and Meningitis UK are aiming to raise £7 million to help fund this research and to help make us all more aware of this disease.

And here’s how we can get involved – this September it’s time to stick the kettle on, get those mixing bowls out and get baking for Time 4 Tea which Meningitis Uk hope will be Britain’s biggest and best tea party extravaganza! All you need to do is visit meningitisuk.org, fill in your details and get planning your tea & cake fund raising event which can be anything from a cake bake off, a tea dance or just the chance to have a nice tea break with your friends and colleagues. Big or small, all the Time 4 Tea event fund raising will play such a huge part in helping Meningitis UK hit that £7 million target (whilst enjoying a nice drop of tea and cake at the same time!)

We have a fab recipe to get you guys started – matcha cookies anyone?
