Plun­ket will ben­e­fit from a tra­di­tional English af­ter­noon tea on Mother’s Day this year.

The Lang­ham Ho­tel is bring­ing back its sig­na­ture Mother’s Day Af­ter­noon Tea with pro­ceeds go­ing to Plun­ket.

Start­ing with a glass of cham­pagne, guests will en­joy a tra­di­tional three-tiered af­ter­noon tea, with sand­wiches, scones, cakes and del­i­ca­cies, live jazz, es­presso cof­fee and an ex­otic loose-leaf tea se­lec­tion on May 11.

All guests also re­ceive a bag of take-home niceties.

About 400 peo­ple are ex­pected to mark Plun­ket’s 100th an­niver­sary.

Lang­ham man­ag­ing di­rec­tor John Dick says Plun­ket was cho­sen be­cause it is a ser­vice ev­ery New Zealand mother can re­late to and has ben­e­fited from.

“We’ve all been weighed by one of the won­der­ful Plun­ket nurses at some stage in our early life and as par­ents I think we’ve all been able to ben­e­fit from the sup­port Plun­ket has pro­vided.”

The af­ter­noon tea runs from 2pm to 4.30pm on Sun­day, May 11. Tick­ets are $49 adult, chil­dren un­der 12 half price and un­der fives free with $10 from each adult ticket and $5 from each child ticket go­ing to Plun­ket.

Reser­va­tions are es­sen­tial. Phone 300-2809 or email denise.and rade@lang­hamho­tels. com. In­for­ma­tion, see lang­hamho­tels.co.nz.

My treat: Mums can par­take in the Lang­ham’s sig­na­ture af­ter­noon tea this Mother’s Day.
