HOMES, gardens, village halls and offices are being turned into cream tea havens as part of a special charity event next month.

The BIG South West Cream Tea takes place from September 19 to 26 in aid of the Children's Hospice South West - and the charity wants you to get involved.

Emma Puckey, head of fund-raising at Little Bridge House said: "You could organise a huge cream tea for the whole village in your local hall or a smaller one in your back garden for close friends.

"Whatever you decide, the BIG South West Cream Tea is a fun and scrumptious way to help raise vital funds to support life-limited children."

The annual event is being sponsored by Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream who will be donating a supply of their clotted cream to anyone holding a cream tea party during children's hospice week.

"A BIG South West Cream Tea information pack is jam-packed with everything you will need for your event, including Children's Hospice South West's top secret scone recipe," added Emma.
