Cafes owners and bakers are being urged to engage with National Tea and Cake Break on 17 October.

The day aims to raise money for Epilepsy Action by encouraging tea drinkers and cake lovers to support the event.

“Holding a National Tea and Cake Break really is a piece of cake,” said Michael White, fundraising events officer at Epilepsy Action. “Whether it’s a simple cup of tea and cupcake at home with friends, a tea party in the office or a school bake sale, anybody can get involved.

“Everyone who registers to hold a National Tea and Cake Break will receive a free pack bursting with hints, tips and tools to get their event off to a sweet start. Anyone who takes part really will be baking a difference for people with epilepsy.”
