Time running out for afternoon tea

CITYGATE Construction’s afternoon tea initiative for housing providers closes for entries next Tuesday (January 31).

Afternoon Tea with CGC is designed to provide a financial helping hand to housing associations and housing co-


The aim is to encourage them to host afternoon tea events as a way of valuing senior citizen tenants and to fight loneliness and isolation in communities.

Housing providers are being invited to apply for £200 each to fund afternoon tea sessions.

Citygate Construction Managing Director Leo Reilly said: “The deadline for applications for funding is next Tuesday so if an housing association or housing co-operative has not applied now is the time to do it.
“It is our way of saying thank you to housing providers who are doing such a good job in so many communities.”

CGC will send the winners “pop-up” brightly coloured cardboard cake stands to make sure the events have an authentic afternoon tea feel.

What CGC is now asking housing providers to do is to email or write to CGC telling the firm their plan for afternoon tea. It doesn’t need to be long – just an outline of how it is intended to make it a success.

Then email it over to afternoontea@citygateglobe.com or if preferred send it by post to “Afternoon Tea with CGC”, City Gate Construction Ltd, 24 MacDowall Street, Paisley PA3 2NB. This email address can also be used if there are any questions. CGC will then select the best ones as winners.
