Dig through your attics, browse the charity shops and dust down that old crockery, as Contact the Elderly is holding its very first The Perfect Vintage Tea, during June and July. Supported by Laura Carmichael (who plays Lady Edith in Downton Abbey), we would love as many of you as possible to hold vintage-inspired tea parties over the next two months.
Not only will you have lots of fun in the process, you will be helping to increase awareness of Contact the Elderly and raise funds to extend our vital lifeline to many more lonely older people living in England, Scotland and Wales. Whether you’re a keen baker, a lover of all things vintage or you’re simply looking for a new fundraiser for your employees, then Contact the Elderly’s The Perfect Vintage Tea could be just what you’re looking for.
Thanks for your support.

Laura Carmichael, (pictured above right), who recently attended a Contact the Elderly tea party, says: “The difference companionship can make to the life of an older person is immeasurable and I believe Contact the Elderly is a wonderful way of combating loneliness.
