community spirit & charity


Our charity committee

Here at Rodda’s, community spirit and charity are very important to us. From afternoon teas, to charity cake sales- all sorts of fantastic fundraisers are taking place across the UK every year. We want to help support as many organisations as we can to bring these events to life. 

By supporting these events with a donation of cream, we have helped to raise…

Rodda’s also work in partnership with Wilkin & Son Tiptree to run The Cream Tea Society. Each year both organisations donate up to 50,000 portions of Cornish clotted cream tea and jam, to help charity event organisers on their way.

We are now accepting requests for portions of jam and cream for charity events. Unfortunately, we are unable to take any further portion requests for July 2023 due to an overwhelming amount of requests. We are still taking requests for August and September. 

Planning your request

organise well in advance

We recommend that all requests are sent to us in advance of the date they are required. Due to the timescales of processing each email, we are unable to offer support for any applications that are received any less than four weeks before the event date.


Due to the volume of requests we receive, we are not always able to help everyone – much as we would like to. Our committee receives a large number of emails and letters throughout the year, and whilst we endeavour to reply to your submission as soon as possible, during busy periods, we ask that you allow up to ten working days for a response.


delivery & collection

Any donation offered can be collected from our Creamery in Scorrier, near Redruth. If you live further afield, we can offer delivery via a third party courier (for a charge of £7.20) on either a Tuesday or Thursday.  We also ask for any information you can give us after the event on how much has been raised. This allows us to measure the impact of our donations and helps us to continue giving to charity and community groups throughout the year.
