This summer, Hft is asking you to brew the nation’s favourite beverage and host your very own Hftea party.
Whether you’re throwing a Mad Hatter’s tea party or a garden tea party, when it boils down to it, we’d be delighted if you could host your very own tea party to help raise funds for people with learning disabilities and autism.
Around 1.5 million adults in the UK have a learning disability, many of whom will need support in order to live and have choices in life.
Hft is a national charity that supports people with learning disabilities and autism. We offer people the kind of help support and encouragement that helps them have choice to live the best life possible. This can range from finding someone a job, to helping them make friends, to adapting their home so that they can enjoy new levels of independence.
Now, more than ever, we need your help to ensure that we can continue to provide the best support.
We’re inviting you to host an Hftea Party this July anywhere you fancy, at home, at friends or in the park.
Then all you have to do is pop the kettle, bake the cakes and have the most teariffic time ever!

It could provide someone with a one cup kettle that helps them safely make a cup of tea without needing the assistance of a support worker.
How do I host an Hfttea party?
Sign up and our fundraising pack contains lots of information and inspiration; simply everything you need to have the best tea party ever.
How do I raise money?
The simplest way is to set up your own fundraising page online, which is linked to Hft. It means your guests don’t have to bring cash, and can even donate at any time they want.
There are lots of ways to raise money, you could charge guests on the door, you could arrange some fun activities like a quiz, fancy dress, auction yummy baked goods, live bake-a-thon or decorating games!
What are the best ways to promote my It’s Hftea time party?
We recommend promoting it on your social channels. You could send out personal invites that way or by email or phone. Once invited keep everyone updated and excited for the big day, set up a WhatsApp or Facebook group to do this.
Congratulations to all of our prize draw winners of Its Hftea time. All winners will be contacted by email.
Thank you for your support.
