The Willow Foundation is putting on a Take Time for Tea fundraiser over the summer, with supporters urged to hold events across the country.

It has enlisted the help of the BBC’s Great British Bake Off winner, Francis Quinn, who has provided recipes to help with parties.

Chief executive David White said: “This is such a simple way to raise money for Willow.

“It also embodies exactly what Willow is all about – a chance to enjoy quality time together with family and friends.

“Every little helps so no matter how much you raise at your tea party, you will be helping many more seriously ill young adults to enjoy a special day.”

The charity was set up by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife Megs, to give special days to seriously ill young adults.
