1940s inspired pop-up tea room for Great British Sunday Lunch

Clair Roberts has turned her passion for vintage into a living and now she's aiming to raise funds for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Clair will host a pop-up tea room over the weekend of 12/13 September to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Her event will be part of our Great British Sunday Lunch fundraiser, with a 'ration book' inspired menu including things like corned beef sandwiches and Victoria sponge.

A percentage of all sales will go to the Fund and there will be a collection pot as well.

Clair said: "I have absolute respect for the RAF. Those young men did not fight for our freedom for us to ignore them. We must never forget.

"That entire generation is disappearing now and all those memories and all those people who fought for us.

"I know that we still have young people who are fighting in conflicts around the world, protecting our freedoms today and the RAF Benevolent Fund supports them."

Clair, who creates 1940s ceramics and fabric, decided to support the RAF Benevolent Fund after being inspired by fellow Cornish producer Tregothnan tea which produced a special RAF Benevolent Fund tea, called Churchill’s Finest to mark the 75th anniversary.
