The Great Somerset G&T Party

Let the par-tea be-gin!

Your support matters now more than ever as our ability to generate income has been seriously compromised by the covid-19 outbreak.

That’s why we’re inviting you to get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours and host a Great Somerset G&T Party in aid of St Margaret’s Hospice Care.

Catch up with friends, family and colleagues and enjoy tea or gin and cake (of course!) whilst raising money for people who are facing a life-limiting illness in Somerset, from the comfort of your own homes or gardens, or virtually.

Most importantly, however you choose to host your party we ask you to follow the latest government coronavirus guidance so we can all stay safe and well.

And, don’t forget to drink responsibly!

Tips and advice

  • It’s not all about gin or tea you can pick your tipple of choice, have a coffee or hot chocolate or get out the juice!
  • Organise a traditional or children’s tea party so that non-drinkers and guests under the age of 18 can join in the fun.
  • You could give your party a theme – festival fun, tropical paradise or naughty nineties.
  • Take lots of photos and videos at your Great Somerset G&T Party and share on social media using #GandTParty – don’t forget to tag us in!
  • Remember to focus on your time spent together and make sure your Great Somerset G&T Party is full of fun and laughter.
  • However you choose to host your party we ask you to follow the latest government coronavirus guidance so we can all stay safe and well.
