For their recent campaign, Age UK Merton ask locals to hold a strawberries ‘n’ cream tea this summer to help older people in Merton to love later life. Lady Wimbledon finds the ultimate strawberry to join her party…
Wimbledon is home to the world’s most famous strawberries and cream in the world and it has been a tradition at the tennis since 1877. So this month, Age UK Merton are asking for the support of the local community to help raise much needed funds for their latest campaign: Love Later Life.
Eyes of Lady W bloggers couldn’t think of a better spot for a beautiful tea party than Cannizaro House, with official Wimbledon towels by Christy draped over chairs. Lady W surprised us all by inviting the ultimate strawberry: #StrawberryMan.
Along with Wimbledon’s Darling Magazine editor, Karine Torr, the blogger tribe had a glorious afternoon with the sun shining across the grounds.
To help make Merton a great place to grow old, hold your own tea party and ask friends and family for donations to attend. Age UK have a free fundraising pack available online giving you all the hints, tips and info you need to organise your own strawberries ‘n’ cream tea. Simply complete the form here >.
