Sail 4 Cancer are still inviting sailing clubs and other organisations, businesses, schools and individuals to help improve the quality of life for people living with cancer by holding a "Tea by the Sea" during the month of May.
Now in its third year, this simple but incredibly effective initiative is a great opportunity to have some fun, whilst supporting a highly deserving cancer charity.
A pot of tea and some delicious cakes and biscuits is all you need - invite friends and colleagues to join you, ask them to make a donation to Sail 4 Cancer and there you have it!
Of course people can choose to do more than that with raffles, pirate themes, fancy dress, silly races and much more - and it´s a great way for sailing clubs to attract new members and bring existing members closer; but all we ask is that you have a thoroughly enjoyable get-together whilst raising some money to help Sail 4 Cancer make a real difference to those living with cancer.
And if there´s no sea nearby? Use your imagination - borrow a sandpit and some seashells or a stripy deckchair; twist the name a little - we´ve had a "Tea by the Thames" and a "Cake by the Lake" to name just a couple of alternatives. It can be as low key or as high profile as you like; take a look at the Tea by the Sea 09 pack for ideas and suggestions.
But please, put on that kettle, have some fun and raise some funds.
To find out more about holding a tea party yourself or to check if there´s a Tea by the Sea being held near you, please see the website sail4cancer.org
