Entertainer Christopher Biggins calls on you to hold a tea party for Diabetes UK

Entertainer Christopher Biggins is urging people to support Diabetes UK’s Care For A Cuppa fundraising campaign. He has sent the following letter to the editors of all newspapers in the UK pledging his support and asking readers to organise a tea party for Diabetes UK:


Dear Sir,

I am writing to ask your readers to organise a tea party and help raise vital funds for Diabetes UK’s Care For A Cuppa campaign. The leading health charity, supported by Splenda Low Calorie Sugar Alternative, is urging people to organise tea parties to help support research and other diabetes-related projects.

Diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to devastating complications including heart disease, blindness and amputation. I discovered I had Type 2 diabetes three years ago and know first hand how it can dramatically change your life.

There are three million people with the condition in the UK and this number is set to rise to four million by 2025. Throwing a Care For A Cuppa party is a great way to entertain friends and family with the knowledge that you are making a real difference to the lives of people with diabetes.

To register for a party and receive a fundraising pack, please contact the Diabetes UK Care For A Cuppa team on 020 7424 1870 or Enjoy your cuppa!

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Biggins, Entertainer
