High Tea for Hi(dden) Society

Where there's tea, there's hopeHigh Tea cups

People who are homeless are often invisible to the rest of society, hidden within their own community.

Hosting a High Tea for Hi(dden) Society is something you can do with your friends, family and colleagues to support people facing homelessness in Adelaide.

Why host a High Tea?

Every night 1 in 200 people in Australia are homeless.

In South Australia 5,985 people find themselves without shelter, a warm place to rest their heads, where they feel safe and secure.

Our aim is to end homelessness for every person who walks through our doors - and we need your help to do so.

Host a High Tea and help people come out of the shadows and break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

Host with the Most

You might meet at a local high tea venue and put in some extras dollars as donations, or you might prefer to host a simple or lavish event at home. Our experience is others will generously support such a worthy cause while they enjoy good company, food, tea and coffee.  In the past, hosts have boosted their fundraising with raffles or lucky door prizes or games. Be creative and have some fun.

We have made hosting your own High Tea easy with our downloadable resources. All you need to do is register your interest and the proposed date you wish to hold your High Tea and we will send some great info and resources to you.

You might also be interested in theming your event with tea cup and saucer sets, cake stands or beautiful table cloths.
