This year our Cream Teas are going virtual and we’d love you to join us and help raise money to support our projects! You can do this individually or with family at home or perhaps even with friends over zoom or skype.
The important date to remember is 3pm on Saturday 20th June – a date particularly significant to us because it is during Learning Disabilities Awareness Week (17-22 June) – we can’t think of a better way to raise awareness of the wonderful people that we work with at the Life Project.

We have been working hard to get ready to launch new activity days at the Barn and to pilot new projects in the city. Timing might be affected by COVID-19 but by supporting this fundraiser you will enable us to react creatively to how we deliver our new services and reach more people as soon as we can.
Preparations for your delicious CREAM TEA will include:
- How to make the perfect cup of tea
- The big reveal – the scone recipe used at the Barn
- The poll of the year – jam and cream, or, cream and jam?
- Exciting prize information
- How to contribute to our fundraising target of £2,500 (please see below)
Learning Disability Awareness Week 2020 theme is ‘the importance of friendships during lockdown’. We know the value and importance of our own friendships and we know all too well the affect that the current lockdown has had on our community. So help us reach our fundraising target of £2,500 to enable us to continue delivering our current on-line activities and help us slowly re-establish our face-to-face work in the coming months.
Would you consider giving what you would normally pay for a cream tea?
Did you know that cream tea for one at a local garden centre costs £12, at The Pump Rooms in Bath it’s £27.50 and at the Ritz in London it’s £72?!
To give you an idea of what your donation could provide:
- £12 buys a pack of craft materials or seedlings for the allotment
- £27.50 pays a support worker for a 2 hour session
- £72 could buy sanitiser and dispensers for our Barn and Allotment
