A Horsham mum has hailed the work of a Horsham charity as it launches its second ‘cream teas in a box’ fundraising scheme.
After the success of its first delivery in June, which saw hundreds of cream teas delivered to homes, schools and workplaces, Action Medical Research is running a second delivery on August 7.
Its British cream teas in a box contain scones, Tiptree strawberry jam, Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream and strawberry crème chocolates, as well as Yorkshire Tea, a knife and serviette.
Ordering one of the cream teas, each priced at £6, will help the charity’s work to save and change the lives of children with various conditions including Down syndrome, epilepsy and meningitis.
Henry Johnston is one Horsham boy who has benefitted from the research into vision and Down’s Syndrome.
Since he was prescribed bifocals by the town’s Vision Express, he has progressed activities such as with reading, and writing.
Mum Caroline said: “Henry is just like any other 12-year-old boy in that he is very active and sociable. He loves being outside and being with his friends. Bifocal glasses have opened up his world properly.”
Action Medical Research is offering readers an exclusive 10 per cent discount by entering the code CREAMTEAS10 when placing your order at action.org.uk/cream-teas. Order by Thursday July 30 to have a cream tea delivered on Friday August 7. The minimum order is for 10 boxes.
