Blind Veterans UK: Tarts for Troops

Tarts for Troops – Join the Military Wives Choir and host a party to raise funds for Blind Veterans!

1. Register your event
Let us know you’re planning an event – you can download resources to help you plan.

2. Bring or buy tarts
There are hungry people everywhere just waiting for them!

3. Tell everyone you know
“It’s Tarts for Troops! Enjoy a tart, make a donation, and help blind veterans.”

“Calling all tarts! Jam, chocolate or cheese – we want you to bake them for Blind Veterans UK and help prevent anyone who has served our country to have to battle blindness alone.” – The Military Wives Choir

Bakewell tarts, lemon tarts, apple tarts, any kind of tart – all are called upon to do their bit to support blind ex-Service men and women during Blind Veterans Week, 18-24 June.

Get your cookbooks out, or just pop to the shop and buy some tarts. Get together with colleagues, friends, family, members of your church or community group, for a Tarts for Troops party – asking for donations in exchange for your tarts.

Have your tarts with morning coffee or afternoon tea, share tarts at lunch or for dinner with a glass or two of fizz. Your party can be as simple or as fancy as you wish.

Look at the recipes on our site, or contribute your own. If you’re particularly proud of your efforts, inspire others by entering them for Tart of the Day.
