The Big Chocolate Tea Party: It’s time to eat chocolate and raise money for a great cause

The Sick Children’s Trust is always thinking of new and creative ways to get us raising money for a such a good cause and in May it’s asking us to dust off our favourite china, make some chocolate goodies and get eating!

The Big Chocolate Tea Party campaign aims to raise £100,000 in aid of The Sick Children’s Trust, which supports families of seriously ill children being treated in hospital.

Master chocolatier and vice president of the Sick Children’s Trust, Paul a Young, alongside Great British Bake Off star John Whaite and celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, are putting their support behind the campaign.

Other celebs helping this great cause include MasterChef winner Tim Anderson, GBBO’s Edd Kimber and Jamie Oliver’s right-hand woman Jools Oliver, who will prepare a batch of 24 brownies to their own recipe, to be auctioned off this in April, running from noon on Friday 17 April until noon Friday 24 April, on
