Ella Preston, a who hosted a Moorfields Tea last year, said:

I organised a Moorfields Tea to support Moorfields Eye Charity because they play a vital role in providing funding and support for our patients, as well as raising awareness about living with sight loss. Also, working in a busy hospital you don’t have much time to socialise and the bake sale was a lovely way to meet new colleagues and catch up with the ones you haven’t seen for a while!

Fancy taking part but stuck for ideas? Check out our tried-and-tested recipes for some inspiration.

Recipe Ideas
