A Cuppa For Carli Afternoon Tea presents :
Guess how many tea bags in the teapot : A Fundraiser for the Carli Lansley Foundation
For obvious reasons it’s not going to be possible to run our annual ‘A Cuppa For Carli’ afternoon tea this September. We are of course disappointed, especially as this year would have been Carli’s 40th birthday, so we really wanted this years afternoon tea to be an extra special celebration.
We still want to mark her birthday in some way so we have decided to organise a fundraising challenge /competition that will still hold the spirit of our event until we can all sit down together for afternoon tea again.
The competition is quite simple. All you have to do is guess how many teabags are in the teapot! The teapot is in the picture on this post and to maybe help you out a bit it is a 1 litre teapot measuring 15cm high, 26cm wide and 16cm deep.
The person who guesses the correct number of teabags (or is closest) will win not one, but two fantastic prizes. The first prize is a voucher for Prosecco afternoon tea for two at the Camelia Hotel in Thorpe Bay (RRP £50)! Those of you who have joined us for afternoon tea will know that the Camelia Hotel have done a fantastic job supporting our last two events.
They will also win a £50 voucher for Hugo’s Pantry in Leigh on Sea. This is a small local business who have been doing their bit to keep the locals well stocked in tasty baked goods – brownies, cookies and bakewell tarts are all on the menu, including vegan treats too.
We have specifically chosen to buy the prizes from local businesses as every year we get a lot of support in order to hold the event and raffle, so at this difficult time, we wanted to support local businesses too.
In the event of there being two closest guesses the prizes will be split. **The person who sent their guess first will have the choice of the prizes.**
And maybe the furthest answer will win the teapot itself! 😂
Entries are a minimum donation of £5 for each guess (of course we’d love it if you could donate more!)
To take part, all you have to do is send your donation via Paypal using firstname.lastname@example.org (or use this handy short link paypal.me/ACuppaForCarli ) and be sure to put in the notes what your guess is! Please also mark your payment as ‘friends and family’ to ensure fees are not taken. If you pick a number that has already been chosen we will let you know so you can guess again!
If you do not have PayPal or have any questions about the competition then please email email@example.com
The winner will be announced by Jessica and Ethan on 22nd September (Carli’s 40th birthday)!
Please share this competition with your friends and family to help us raise as much as possible for The Carli Lansley Foundation and let’s make this year’s A Cuppa For Carli a special one.
We’d like to take this time to thank everyone who has supported our last two afternoon events (by either attending or donating raffle prizes) – it means so very much to Carli’s family, friends and to the both of us 💜
