The charity launches The Perfect Vintage Tea tomorrow (1st June), encouraging as many people as possible to re-create traditional tea parties during June and July.
Contact the Elderly is using the campaign to increase awareness of its free service, as well as to raise funds to extend its vital lifeline to many isolated older people throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
Supported by Laura Carmichael (who plays Lady Edith in Downton Abbey) the campaign is targeting existing volunteers and corporate supporters, as well as new audiences.
A booklet, filled with ideas for recipes and arts & crafts, such as how to make your own bunting and vintage cake stands, can be requested by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
