Tea & toast

Help raise vital funds for our Armed Forces community by holding a Tea & Toast event with friends and family

It is really easy to organise and great fun. All you need is some tea bags, some hot water and lots of toast. You might prefer cake and coffee (even a cheeky glass of prosecco). Poppyscotland’s Regional Fundraising team are here to help you from providing materials like Poppy bunting, napkins and collection tins. We are here to answer all your questions and to give top tips on fundraising.


Tea & Toast FAQs

Why Tea & Toast?

Getting together for a cuppa and slice of toast is a bit of a tradition in the Armed Forces, dating back to the First World War when it was seen as essential to morale. So, we decided to use the phrase as a way to bring together friends and family for a fun fundraising event, Armed Forces style!

Can you only serve Tea and Toast?

Of course not, your tea and toast can be anything you want it to be. People serve everything from sandwiches to home baking as a part of their toasts. They even make an activity out of them such as cake decorating.

What's the other kind of tea and toast?

Is there another kind of tea and toast I hear you say? Well yes there is, simply switch the two around. The Tea can be a dinner, as big and fancy as you like.  Your toast could be something fizzy like a glass of Irn Bru and ‘toast’ to good health!
