Join us for The Big Sandcastle Trust Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea Party!

Applications for this event are now closed.  The application deadline was Monday 21 March at 5:00pm. 


The Sandcastle Trust would like to invite all our Sandcastle families to apply to us for a ‘Bake your Own’ Platinum Jubilee Family Afternoon Tea Box to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this June!

We are partnering with Britain Loves Baking to send all eligible families* a box containing everything you need to bake lots of yummy treats together and throw a family Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea.  We’ll even supply the Union Jack tableware and bunting!

Don’t forget to tag us in the photos of your family baking together and enjoying your family tea party on social media so that we can all see the rare genetic condition community come together to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee whilst creating some fun family memories!

Before applying, please note that the ingredients contain the following allergens: WHEAT, FLOUR, MILK, SOYA, GELATINE.



* Families containing a child, 18+ dependent or parent with a life-changing rare genetic condition are welcome to apply to The Sandcastle Trust.  You can apply for a Platinum Jubilee Bake Box if you have received support from us in the past but if we are oversubscribed, we will prioritise families who have not received previous support.

You can check our full eligibility criteria here or email us at if you have any questions.


We know that this activity will not be suitable for all families living with a rare genetic condition.  We are hoping to be able to run a range of activities such as this throughout the year and offer something that is suitable for everyone.  Please do email us if you have any ideas and suggestions and help us shape our programme of family fun activities .
