You can take part as an individual or as a team, on a static bike at the gym, or outside in the park.

 Cup of Tea for KAB

Cup of Tea poster2016We would love you to organise a cake sale or coffee morning for KAB; community events like this are a really important part of our work as they not only raise vital funds for us, but also raise awareness of sight loss and the importance of good eye health. It's a great opportunity to ask when people last had their eyes tested. What about their parents or children? Everyone should have an eye test every two years even if there has been no change to their vision.

To compliment your event we can offer personalised posters and leaflets as well as information packs, balloons, table cloths, collecting tins etc...

The money you raise - however small - can make a huge difference to our work in the local area.

As well as individuals and community groups, we would love to get tea rooms and cafe's involved too; for more information about how you can support us, or to request your free tea party pack, please contact Amy by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or calling 01622 691357
