Tea Cosy Challenge raises over $900

Home > About Us > News & Promos

The Red Sparrow Tea Co Tea Cosy Challenge is officially over for 2017, the end result being over $900 raised for local charity.

Red Sparrow Tea in partnership with Coffs Central launched the inaugural tea cosy challenge in April and during the course of the following months almost 60 cosies were entered.

Everything from roosters to strawberries, kangaroos and tribal chiefs, sunflowers and poppies were entered with the winning cosy created by Rae Gilles “The Hive.”

As a condition of entry, cosies were donated and were then sold in-store with 100% of proceeds donated to the Look Good, Feel Better Charity. “We are pleased to announce over $900 was raised to directly fund workshops here on the Coffs Coast” said Alison Paul, Manager of Red Sparrow Tea Company.

Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment. There are around 7 workshops held on the Coffs Coast per year and women, men and teens participate in a workshop which covers skin care, makeup and head ware demonstrations to empower them after cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Nicole from Look Good, Feel Better wrote: “Through your support 12 Look Good Feel Better workshop places will be fully funded, it is an incredible amount to raise and will make a positive impact on the lives of some many people.”

“We’ve had some ladies enter multiple times, it is so wonderful to see the support locals are willing to give towards such an amazing program,” said Alison.

“I would like to extend a personal thanks to all the ladies who entered and also all the people who purchased a cosy. And also to Coffs Central for being such fantastic partners, donating prizes and creating such an amazing display of cosies earlier last month.”

The challenge will be on again next year with the competition being announced in April 2018.
