Celebrating International Older People’s Day with a Cream Tea and The Rock Choir

Age UK Surrey is delighted to announce that The Rock Choir is supporting our Cream Tea event to celebrate International Older People’s Day on 1stOctober 2020.
The virtual cream tea is being organised to help raise funds to keep vital services available for older people across Surrey. Anyone can host an online tea party or invite a few friends to join them for a socially distanced get together in their home, garden or park (following current Government guidelines). No tickets are required but guests are encouraged to donate to Age UK Surrey’s aloneTOGETHER campaign – use Cream Tea as a reference: https://ageuksurrey.enthuse.com/cf/alone-together
