Cup of Tea with a Refugee? Join our Campaign

The Cup of Tea with a Refugee campaign uses one of Scotland’s favourite pastimes to bring people together. Everybody loves a cup of tea. Refugees are often just seen as statistics or news stories. We want to change the conversation and show that they’re real people, just like us.

Primarily a campaign to change the conversation- you can also run a Cup of Tea event to raise funds for refugees. So why not join us over a brew so we can show some proper Scottish hospitality and find out why we’re not that different after all. Our campaign website Cup of Tea with a Refugee offers tips and recipes to support you in the campaign. Contact our fundraising team, if you’d like to run an event as a fundraiser.
