Fight illness through tea

We'd like to invite readers to catch up with their family, friends, colleagues and neighbours over a cuppa and a slice of cake this summer and help raise money to make sure no one has to face the devastation of meningitis alone.

Our Time 4 Tea events raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of the disease, as well as funds to fight back against it.

Meningitis affects around 9,000 people across the UK each year and can have a significant impact on family members and friends too.

At Meningitis Now we’re working towards a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need.

We do this by funding research into vaccines and prevention, raising awareness so people know what to look for and what action to take if they suspect meningitis, and rebuilding futures by providing dedicated support to people living with the impact of the disease.

The beauty of Time 4 Tea is that you can hold it whenever and wherever suits you best – at home, at work, at school, and if baking isn’t your cup of tea, try one of our tasty alternatives – Time 4 Breakfast, Time 4 Champagne or Time 4 BBQs.

Holding a Time 4 Tea event for us means every cuppa you pour moves us closer to our goal.

Taking part couldn’t be easier. We have everything you need, including recipes galore, bunting and ready-made invitations in the free event pack at
