Crafternoon Tea is a chance for people to get together and share their creativity and have some fun in each other’s company.  

Raising funds for Camphill Village Trust means you are helping more people with learning and other disabilities to lead a life of opportunity.

The people we support have been involved in the project from the beginning, helping to design the activities and hosting their own parties. This really is a team effort!

Craft kits available to order

Our community members have helped put together some craft kits containing everything you’ll need for some creative activities for you and up to four guests to enjoy.

Raise funds to support our work

We’re challenging everyone who hosts a crafternoon tea party to raise a minimum of £25. We’ve lots of fundraising ideas to help you reach this target. As well as a chance to get creative, Crafternoon Tea is a fundraiser for the Trust so whilst you don’t want to spoil the atmosphere by making it solely about money and fundraising, there are ways you can boost the funds you raise…

Make it fun and inclusive, could you ask people to guess the weight of a cake, or run a ‘bake-off’ as part of your party?  

You could hold a guess the baby competition where all the guests have to bring a photo of themselves as a baby? Or perhaps host a short quiz based around Camphill Village Trust’s work?

To make it a little different, could you host a silent auction of prizes for people to bid for, or a traditional raffle? Everyone loves a raffle!  

We’re asking each host to try and raise £25 for the Trust during their party. For a bity of extra motivation, every host who raises £50 or over will be entered into a prize draw to win a workshop experience at Camphill Village Trust.  

To help you host your party we have put together a few ideas you could consider when planning your event. Remember why you are all together…  

To add a little ceremony to proceedings you could make a short welcome speech for your guests.
