Thank you for look at our cause.
Strathearn Tea was started as online business and we have developed an excellent range of loose leaf teas - however that isn’t the dream!
We want to establish community hubs across the U.K. whilst starting in our home city we have big aspersions! By combining excellent tea at affordable prices (we have over 20 years experience in the industry) and a safe place to be, we want to be the go-to place where ANYONE can relax, read, or just be with a cup of tea. Our business model enables us to be self-sufficient once open
Looking at the LGBTQ+ Community most venues are dedicated to alcohol sales, this isn’t conducive to a safe environment.
The most vulnerable of all society would not feel comfortable entering a bar or nightclub alone, and we have to have a place they come and relax but also reach out for help or assistance, providing this is vital in these troubling times. We aim to provide everyone in need to access to support that may not always be available in a setting which everyone can enjoy. Sitting with a cake just like anyone else but having access to help and putting everyone on a equal footing.
We are raising money to open our first store, fixtures and fittings, and the additional support materials required. Every standard sale will help pay forward, meaning if you came and drank a cup of tea with us paying full price you’d also be donating to provide a warm drink and support to someone in their time of need.
