A café is giving people the chance to enjoy a traditional British afternoon tea and raise money for young people with cancer.

Daisy’s in the Park, which has a branch in Cassiobury Park as well as Radlett and Pinner, normally holds an annual charity afternoon tea in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

That is not possible this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it is instead hosting The Big Takeaway Tea for people to enjoy a traditional British afternoon tea from the comfort of their own home.

The Big Takeaway Tea takes place this weekend, but organisers have decided to extend the fundraising initiative for the rest of the month, meaning it will continue on Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20 and the final weekend of the month as well.

To take part, people need to order their takeaway afternoon tea for two by the Tuesday before they wish to consume it. The tea can then be collected from the Daisy’s café of your choice and enjoyed over the weekend.

The cost of the tea for two is £50 including a bottle of Porta Leone Prosecco (a soft drink alternative is available), while a children’s half portion tea costs £8. You can place your order via this link.

Daisy’s will then donate 80 per cent of the proceeds to the Teenage Cancer Trust, which is the only UK charity dedicated to providing young people suffering from the illness with specialised nursing care and support.

The menu includes a selection of finger sandwiches and sweet treats, with a vegetarian option also available.
