Blue Sunday 2024

The Tea Party For M.E.

Over £100,000 raised for ME/CFS charities since 2013.

Join the ME/CFS community on Sunday 19th May as we come together to have a Tea Party For M.E.

• Dig out your favourite mug, or your best cups and saucers

• Wear something blue (pyjamas count!)

• Have a slice of cake, or two. It can be bought or baked, and if your own dietary requirements limit you from eating cake then you can switch cake for whatever works best for you

• If you can, the price you'd pay for tea and cake to an M.E. charity.

• Post a photo of your tea party set-up to social media. This allows those who are joining in by themselves to feel a part of something bigger. It breaks the isolation that we all feel when we are too unwell to be with people in-person

• Chat online with others doing the exact same thing. Swap recipes. Like photos. Comment on the gorgeous tea sets that others are using

• Follow the hashtags #BlueSunday2024 and #TeaPartyForME2024 or use the dedicated Facebook event to see everyone else's tea party related posts.

With no right or wrong way to join in on Blue Sunday, I hope you'll find a way that works for you. A few examples of how others join in each year:

* Having a solo Tea Party For M.E. in whatever way that looks like

* using a blue mug

* ensuring there's a packet of your favourite biscuits in your bedside drawer ready for the day

* joining a video call

* inviting a few friends over to sit and chat with you while you're in bed

* holding a bake sale

* scrolling through other peoples' Blue Sunday posts

* having a garden tea party

It's about feeling a part of what is surely the most resilient community out there.

And raising a tonne of money while we do that!

We aim to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by children and adults with M.E.

We're working to ensure children, young people, adults and families living with the illness are supported during this unprecedented time and beyond. Our dedicated team is here for anyone living with, or supporting someone with, M.E. of any age, anywhere in the UK.
