From wearing full 1940s style outfits, making your cakes with a
week's worth of rations to just using our themed posters and
bunting, make it cake and tea at all costs.
Bake some cakes or hit the shops, grab some sandwiches and
invite your family and friends to join you. Once you sign up to
host your party we've got lots of useful tips to raise money and
make organising your party as easy as possible.

Use the media
Local newspapers and radio stations are always on the lookout
for stories about people in their area. Contacting them to share
the story of your fundraising could lead to an article or
interview. This publicity could help you: raise the profile of your
challenge or event; generate more sponsorship locally; make more
men aware of prostate cancer and what we can do to help them; and
inspire others to join you in fundraising to fight prostate
You could download a press release template to make the first
contact. If journalists need specialist information about prostate
cancer or a spokesperson from the charity we will be happy to
provide this. They can contact 020 8222 7669 or email email@example.com.

"At HemingwayDesign we have a philosophy
that 'design is about improving things that matter in life' and at
Prostate Cancer UK, the mission is to improve the services and
research into the disease in order to help save men's lives - which
is vital to men and their families.
I love that the charity has decided to celebrate the
contribution that the 1940s has made to our lives through Tea for
Victory. I realise more and more the value in vintage and how
"looking back to look forward" is a progressive way of making sure
that great fashion and design never fades, stays available for
future generations and is re-evaluated like all great things should
be. I'm hoping my designs for this event will inspire people's Tea
For Victory parties. Viva La Vintage!"
