Afternoon tea is always a delight. Add a little sun to the mix, and you have the recipe for a truly scrumptious fundraising event! And that’s exactly what Jess did.

Jess, one of our fabulous fundraisers, believes strongly in the work we do to tackle social isolation and loneliness, and was delighted to join the team to raise money for community projects throughout Scotland.

Jess had never organised a fundraiser before. But, inspired by a friend who had done something similar, Jess decided to hold an afternoon tea.

”I was helped by friends and family - bakers and makers!  We had a great afternoon.  It was a lovely way to get my friends together and the sun shone too.”

The event, Jess’s first ever fundraiser, was a huge success, raising an amazing £443. And what's more, Jess took her newly found enthusiasm to go on and walk the Glasgow Kiltwalk, raising even more money for such a vital cause. 

It’s easier than you think to raise money - fundraising is simply about getting people together, having some fun, and raising those all important pennies along the way.
