Looking to put on your own Care for a Cuppa event, but want to do something a little bit different? Why not get interactive and hold your own Virtual Cuppa event. 

It’s easy, fun and a great way to get all of your friends and family together in one virtual space.  

Here’s how you can do it: 

  1. Make a cuppa
  2. Take a photo or boomerang* of yourself raising a cuppa, lifting your cup to the screen ‘cheers’ style
  3. Hashtag #RaiseACuppa for @khhosp
  4. Donate the cost of your cuppa to Katharine House - please see donate options below
  5. Share your cuppa with friends on Instagram and Facebook and get them to join in the tea party!
  6. Better yet, why not Skype them or WhatsApp group video call and share your cuppa in real time together.

Keep in touch

We would love to see your photographs and hear your stories so please keep us updated by tagging us in your photos or by emailing the team directly at [email protected].

Virtual Cuppa is a great way to interact with those close to you and far beyond.

  • Start up your own #RaiseACuppa tweetup group and spread the word that this month is Care for a Cuppa month. If you’re stuck indoors but still want to put on a party, Virtual Cuppa is the 21st-century way to do it! 
  • Share your favourite recipes, cooking tips and ‘best of’ cake creations by setting up your own YouTube channel or podcast. Make sure you include the hashtag #RaiseACuppa for @khhosp.

* If you're not familiar with Boomerang, these are very short video clips that go backwards and forwards - it's what we've been using on our social media promotion. You can upload the technology to Instagram by using the figure of eight symbol that appears bottom right of the main image when you're selecting it. It's fun! Why not give it a try.
