We would like to thank everyone again for coming to ‘A Cuppa for Carli’ on 28 September 2019. We hope you all enjoyed your afternoon and we’re so happy that so many of you were able to come along and support the event.
It was of course another emotional day, and seeing so many of you who all knew Carli from all different times of her life meeting up, catching up and sharing happy memories was really special to see and we know it’s what Carli would have wanted.
We are proud to announce our fundraising total for the event – from the afternoon tea ticket sales, fantastic raffle ticket sales both of which were seperately donation matched – is an amazing £2000.00! We’re so happy we could hit the £2k mark again and cannot thank you enough.
We are so grateful to everyone for attending and all your support. Next year Carli would have been 40 so we plan to do something special to celebrate and hope you will be able to support us again next year and also help us to continue the tradition of our birthday afternoon teas in Carli’s memory.

And of course a HUGE thank you to The Camelia for hosting and the fantastic afternoon tea and service they provided. They helped make the event the success it was. We like to recognise the service from the staff at the Camelia with a gratuity which they kindly donated back to the charity.
The evening was spent as a well earned chill out with friends, with a few ‘stronger’ cuppas for the one of us who is allowed 😉
Thank you all again, your suppport means the world to us and to Carli’s family.
