TEA, CAKE & ART – CONNECTIONS THAT MATTER
Our 2020 Christmas Campaign

A huge Thank You to everyone supporting our Tea, Cake & Art Christmas Campaign. Together we’ve managed to hit the target, raised £5,580 and ensured that Tea, Cake & Art, a weekly creative session for older people living alone, can continue to meet for another year. All credit due to our 67 brilliant donors, amazing volunteers and match funders: Councillor Jim McKenna’s Community Chest and Cornwall Council funds: Creative Cornwall Calling and the Social Inclusion Fund.

Our Tuesday afternoons with Tea, Cake & Art have been a bright spot in the gallery programme throughout this uncertain year.

I’ve really appreciated these sessions because I did miss the people I used to meet, you know, and I still do and this is at least keeping me in touch a bit.’

We are working hard to keep the all-important connection going within the group, and we are running Tea, Cake & Art via Zoom (with technical support for those new to the digital world) and as a postal version for those who prefer to stay analogue.

If you, or someone you know, would like to take part, please email Bettina Wenzel who will let you know how to join and what you will need.

I would like to have projects sent by post, and I would like to try them online. Your ideas on keeping Tea, Cake & Art going like this is brill!

Keeping connections alive amongst more isolated sections of our community has been a priority during both lockdowns, and will continue to be as we embark upon 2021.
