National Cupcake Week’s major sponsor Wellbeing of Women is hosting a Vintage Tea Week in June and is urging bakeries to get involved.
The charity for women and babies’ health is celebrating its birthday year by asking everybody to get involved with their own vintage tea parties from 12 to 18 June - and throughout the summer.
Wellbeing for Women is encouraging bakeries to get involved by designing a limited edition collection of cakes or have staff dress up in vintage clothes for the day to attract attention.
It suggests consumers could put on a coffee morning, afternoon tea or organise a bake off with the proceeds going to charity.
“We want to raise as much awareness and money for Wellbeing of Women as possible during our Birthday year,” said a spokesperson. “Without the generous support of the public and businesses alike we wouldn’t have made such amazing progress in the many areas of women’s health.”
