 North West Simon Community annual Tea Day is virtual this year

Can you host a Virtual Tea Day for the North West Simon Community?

Join North West Simon Community by hosting a Virtual Tea Day on Thursday next, February 18 or any day in February.

This has been a challenging year for us all!

North West Simon community fundraising events have had to be cancelled which account for 80% of their income. However, they believe they've found a way to get around this.

"Just because we cannot come together and meet face-to-face, we can, come together virtually," said a spokesperson today.

"A Virtual Tea Day is an easy and fun way to maintain social distancing and connect with family, friends and colleague while also raising vital funds for North West Simon Community.

"It’s very simple to do…

"1. Let us know that you’d like to host a Virtual Tea Day – contact details below:

"2. Set a date and spread the word to your friends, family or colleagues. Spread the Word. Whether it is through text, e-mail or social media, spread the word and ask your friends, family or colleagues to join. The more people you can get involved, the better!

"3. Choose a platform – Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts and WhatsApp are popular options.
Make sure everyone has the link to join your virtual Tea Day.

"4. You can have fun and theme your online get together - share your ideas with us on our Facebook page and inspire others to get involved - share your photos using #NWSimonTeaDay and post to the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
