Enjoy a cream tea at Tucker’s for charity

31 August 2021 chsw Fundraising

Tucker’s Grave Inn is inviting people to raise money for local families one scone at a time with a special cream tea in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

The Faulkland pub is inviting people to its new café bar on Saturday 11 September from 3-5pm to a cream tea to help CHSW provide support and care to families of children with life-limiting conditions. 

Home-baked cakes and scones will be on sale in the café, with indoor and outdoor seating and beautiful rural views. And a variety of ciders! There will be a fundraising raffle with a variety of prizes donated by supporters and watercolour paintings from David Graham, a local artist who is donating all profits to the charity. 

The event is organised by Dawn Chapman, HR & Health & Safety Manager at Tucker’s, with the backing of Landlady Jo Watts and the team at Tucker’s, with generous support from suppliers and friends.


“Tuckers is just the perfect setting for this cream tea event,” said Dawn. “This new café bar, once the milking parlour, gives you a sense of home coming. Of welcoming loved ones into your space to share time together while enjoying a cake and a cuppa.

“It’s a reality check that for most families they enjoy the peace of never needing to access the support of charities like the CHSW. But there are families that desperately need that support as they have a child that has a life-limiting condition or is facing end of life care.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the team organising the day as I have a passion for fundraising and the good that comes from money raised. I love the planning, the cooking, the bringing people together, after what has been a challenging, and at times, a very isolated and lonely year for many people. Please join us on Sept 11 and we promise to make your visit very special and worthwhile!”

CHSW runs three children’s hospices across the South West - Little Bridge House in Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in Cornwall.

“We’re so grateful to Tucker’s for helping us to make the most of the lives of the children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families,” said Emily Mitchard, Area Fundraiser at CHSW.

“The money raised will help to support local families now and in the future. Each hospice is a loving and caring place where every member of every family who stays can forget their worries for a while, be a family again and find expert help and support with facing an uncertain future.”

The café bar at Tucker’s is a new venture for Jo and husband Brian, bringing a whole new indoor space to the 200 year old grade 1 listed pub. 

Framed watercolour paintings will be on sale for £90, and mounted originals at £60, with £50 direct to the charity for every sale. To see David’s art please visit
