Afternoon Tea Party.

We had our first fundraising event on the last day of August and were delighted to welcome over 60 people for a scrumptious bottomless afternoon tea. The support from local businesses and friends for the raffle was incredible. We were also amazed at the donations of homemade cakes from so many people, thank-you. 

Our local business supporters were Lisa Galvani at In Harmony, Mary Lewis at Bag End Bags, Patricia Bruzon’s Axminster Country Market, Sasha Mitchell, Gillian Butcher at Lyme Regis Nordic Walking, Amy Ralph’s Jurassic Coast Cards, Sharon Dare Massage, Rosemarie Baker at Dower House Hotel, Jo Illingworth at Fernhill Hotel, Sandy Jeans at Green Room Healing, Julia Williams & Karen Forrester-Jones Tripudio Instructors, Hannah Lovegrove at Lovegrove Essentials, Nayna Kumari Reflexology and Holly Ellen Beauty Therapy.

Sarah Nevell  https://www.facebook.com/whatshould1wear/?tn-str=k*F  brought her fantastic collection of clothes and accessories and had a pop-up boutique.  She made a very generous donation from her takings and many people left with a new item of clothing to add to their autumn wardrobe.

This event raised an outstanding £840 which will go to help so many people affected by cancer.
