"We held an Oxfam Coffee Break at morning tea and invited people to enter a bake-off using at least one Fairtrade ingredient. It was a big hit!"
Morning Teas are easy to organise and great fun. Be as creative as you wish or keep it simple – it’s your call.
The basics are as easy as
1, 2, 3 … 4.
1. Sign up
It’s even easier this year as when you sign up online you instantly create your own Morning Tea page which you can invite colleagues, friends and family to.
There are many ways you can invite your guests: print out event invitations from our website, send an invite email from your online Morning Tea page, create a Facebook event or simply call your guests to let them know the details of your Morning Tea. You can also advertise your event with our posters, which will be included in your Morning Tea host pack.
When signing up it is good to start thinking about what style of fundraising you will do. Make fundraising easy, fun and rewarding using our handy tips and ideas.
Registration is just $10 and this helps cover the cost of the Morning Tea packs
You will receive your host pack in the run up to Fair Trade Fortnight. Your Morning Tea host pack will include some Fairtrade Certified™ goods including Caffe L’affare coffee, Kokako drinking chocolate, Scarborough Fair tea, Whittaker’s chocolate to get you started. There’ll also be some promotional materials to use and fundraising tips to make the most of your Morning Tea.

Where and how you host your Morning Tea and how high or low-key an event it is – the choice is all yours.
You might wish to treat your guests to some baking using fair trade sugar, cocoa or dried fruit. There’s lots of ways to get fundraising on the day so check out more ideas on our fundraising pages.
The sooner we receive the proceeds from your Morning Tea, the sooner we can put the money to work. The easiest way to do this is to direct your guests to your online Morning Tea page. To find out more about sending in your donations go to the paying in your money section.
