For anyone that doesn’t yet know, Tea Break are creating a fundraising event for RAG (Raise And Give) Week at De Montfort University.

Firstly, the charity we are raising money for is called The Joe Humphries Memorial Trust

This charity is raising money for a brilliant but heartbreaking cause:

“On Thursday evening 4th October 2012, a knock on the door changed all our lives forever. Our dear beloved, Joe (14 years old), son and brother, collapsed whilst jogging within 2 minutes of our home. The tragedy of losing our fit, healthy, vibrant and fun loving Joe was made all the harder to bear when we found the very next day that 12 fit and healthy young people die every week across the UK, with no prior symptoms or warning. This staggering, unacceptable statistic has inspired close family members and friends to set up ‘The Joe Humphries Memorial Trust so that Joe will not just become another statistic . We have to stop this now and keep his name and what he stood for, along with what he would have become alive.”

We have chosen to support this charity because it is a local charity in Leicester that does not gain as much exposure as the bigger, more established charities and we believe that RAG Week at DMU will hopefully make a big difference.

So please come and visit us in the cafeteria on the Ground Floor of the Campus Centre to have your hand henna’d for only £3 per hand!

Please try and get involved in RAG Week in any way you possibly can, they are all for great causes!

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you Tuesday or Wednesday!

From all of the Tea Break team
