Your AmnesTeas in 2013
Every year we look back over all the fantastic AmnesTeas hosted by our supporters, and every year we’re delighted and inspired by people’s efforts. 2013 was no exception, so we’d like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s either hosted or attended an AmnesTea in the last year.
Together you’ve raised over £17,000 for Amnesty’s work around the globe. Not bad for a humble cuppa with friends!
This year we’ve awarded prizes for top fundraiser, most creative tea party and best photo – take a look at our winners below, and see if they inspire you to put the kettle on for human rights...
This year’s Top Fundraiser is the South Devon Amnesty Group, who raised a fantastic £578.60! Many thanks go out to the group, who in addition to hosting their annual AmnesTeas, work tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for Amnesty.
We’ve sent them a goody bag full of AmnesTeas and biscuits for their next group meeting.
Most Creative AmnesTea
Another goody bag for Most Creative AmnesTea goes to Amanda from Rochester, who hosted her Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the pub where she works. Instead of the traditional English Breakfast and Earl Grey, she served up her cakes with G &Ts, and Long Island Iced Teas, and raised a fantastic £335 for Amnesty.
Thank you Amanda! We hope you enjoy your AmnesTea goodies.
Finally, this year’s Best Photo (see above) was taken by Rachel from London, who sent us a whole album of brilliant pictures from her AmnesTea. It was hard to pick just one, but we thought this shot really captured the spirit of all of your events.
To say thank you to Rachel for her fantastic photography skills we’ve sent her an AmnesTea goody bag too!
