An afternoon of tea, cake & fundraising…

March 2012 is Ovarian Cancer awareness month and The Eve Appeal are asking their supporters to Make Time for Tea and to organise a traditional tea party. 

Funding and awareness of ovarian cancer remains low and we were keen to get involved.

 We wanted to support this charity and organised our own vintage tea party which took place on Friday.  35 gorgeous  ladies arrived, laden with a donation, gossip and bags of enthusiasm.

 

We held the party at Darby & Joan HQ (my house!) and for a couple of hours the room sounded like a wine bar, without the wine.  It was just brilliant. We had a small raffle, with prizes donated by Tineke, us, Boots & Timeless Couture

Lemon drizzle, cupcakes, shortbread, chocolate sponge, victoria sponge, flap jacks, rocky road, brownies, cookies, banana and chocolate loaf…the table was groaning under the weight!

Becky from Butterworth Photography came along and took these gorgeous photos to capture the afternoon perfectly.  Thanks so much Becky – you rock!

We raised around £130 with the addition of gift aid, so we are chuffed to pieces with that – not bad for a couple of hours of eating cake, drinking tea and nattering.

Thank you all ladies for coming along, for supporting us and the charity.  A special thanks to Sally, Jay, Sarah & Stacey – what would I do without you.
