Chance to have a cuppa and cake and support the Adam’Smile fund
A PAIR of businesses in the Harborough area are taking part in National Wear a Tea Cosy Day next week with funds raised going towards a project to build a safe cycle route between Lubenham and Harborough.
The White Stuff clothes shop of High Street, Harborough, will be serving tea and cakes to its customers as part of National Wear a Tea Cosy Day on Thursday next week while Aldwinckles Coffee Shop of Church Street in Harborough will be donating a percentage of money for every tea it sells during that entire week.
Funds raised by both businesses will be going to the Harborough-based Adam’Smile fund.
The campaign was set up by the family of Lubenham 13-year-old Adam Mugridge, who died in a road accident while cycling to school in 2006. The fund’s aim is to build a safe cycle and pedestrian route from Lubenham to Harborough.
Coffee and cakes for White Stuff are being donated by Aldwinckles.
William Scott, the owner of Aldwinckles, said: “I thought it would be a good idea to try and raise awareness of the charity and the teas.
“We have done some sponsorship and charity work with White Stuff over this last year.”
National Wear a Tea Cosy Day is now in its third year and is the brainchild of the White Stuff Foundation which raises cash and awareness for 85 charities.
