8Tea Party


To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, we are calling on our nation to take part in what could be our last opportunity to give thanks to those remaining veterans who fought for our freedom, and in doing so, support our RAF Family members who are in need of our emergency grants service right now.

You can make sure you give thanks by participating in one of our ‘Battle of Britain’s 8Tea Parties’ – a magnificent celebration for all ages to eat, drink and party like its 1940!

Battle of Britain 8Tea Party

How it works

Organise your own 8Tea Party either physically with your friends and family (at a social distance of course!) or virtually. Choose a date, decide if you will do a virtual event or a small gathering and send out invites before you start planning the fun details.

Why not host your own Guess the Bear’s Name competition as part of your 8Tea party to help boost your fundraising target and keep your guests guessing? Find out more about how you can host your competition here.  

How much can you raise?

We are asking if you can raise a minimum of £150.00 at your 8Tea Party. This is just a suggested amount and when you sign up you'll be given a heap of fundraising materials to help boost your fundraising.  

Share your 8Tea Party

Don't forget to take some happy snaps of you and your guests at your 8Tea Party having a tea-riffic time. Share them on social media and tag us (@rafbf) with the hashtag #8TeaParty. You might even encourage your friends and family to host their own 8Tea Party in support of our RAF Family.
