Here at Beatons Tisbury we're delighted to introduce to 'Communitea Cause' for 2015/6 - the local Charity Charlie's Angels.
We'll be supporting Charlie's Angels for the next year and encourage all of our lovely customers to join us in supporting them when they order either of our two Communitea Cause drinks: Communitea Cause Chai Latte and Charlton Soda. You can read more about why we've set up this initiative here.
The charity was set up by the Burns family in memory of their son, ten year old Charlie Burns who died suddenly at night - a victim of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpeted Death in Epilepsy). Charlies Angels are currently supporting SUDEP Action, a smaller charities which does great work but isn't so well known nationally. Charlies Angels have initiated all kinds of wonderful charitable events.
We've already donated Afternoon High Tea for Two as an auction prize for the Sunflower Ball and look forward to continuing to support the charity through the remainder of this and next year.
We now understand a bit more about SUDEP and SUDEP Action ....
'Epilepsy is one of the top-ten causes of early death. Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy or SUDEP can often be traumatic for families and distressing for professionals, all of whom have questions.
SUDEP Action has won national and international honours for their achievements to date, but recognise there is much more work to do. There are five key strands to their work:
• Providing information on SUDEP and risk in epilepsy
• Offering support when someone has died
• Involving people to help effect change
• Sponsoring research and education to prevent future deaths
• Capturing data across the UK through the Epilepsy Deaths Register"
We look forward to supporting SUDEP Action through our support of Charlie's Angels and hope you'll be ordering lots of Communitea Cause Chai Latte and Charlton Sodas!
