The 2020 tea party was on Sunday 17th May and raised over £6000 for M.E. causes! Despite it being an Online Only event, it was the most successful year yet. Likely a result of more people than ever being confined to their homes and experiencing social isolation. I am over the moon that so many people were able to join me on the day and break a little of the loneliness that we can feel.
Having it at the end of M.E. Awareness week gave a lot of us something to focus on during what can be a very hard week trying to educate those around of us of the realities of the illness that has completely altered our lives, and the lives of our families.
Due to the current Government guidelines in relation to the coronavirus, Blue Sunday 2020 was an Online Only event.
The Virtual tea party for M.E. 2020 blog post has a collage of some of the photos that other people shared on the day.
The JustGiving fundraising page is still open. You can find it HERE. Once again, I asked for donations of the price you’d expect to pay for tea and cake in a café.
You can look through the Facebook Event page (Blue Sunday 2020 on Facebook) to see photos from those who joined in this year. Searching the hastags #BlueSunday2020 and #TeaPartyForME2020 will also bring up any relevant photos on Instagram and Twitter.
