On the 29th September Maria Elias organised an amazing Tea Party with an amazing range of cakes and sandwiches all donated by various businesses and friends of Maria, who she had contacted with the help of Antoinette, Zoe and Loredana who comprised the Committee, who had spent 2 months organising this event. Maria’s family and friends turned out in numbers to help Maria on the day helping to serve drinks and food.
Antoinette did Healing sessions and another lady did readings and there were a number of stalls including entertainment for the children. The total amount raised was £2160, which was largely due to a successful Partylite Candle Pool draw that Maria worked hard to promote in the 2 months preceding the event. Our friends from Barclays Bank who attended assisted on the day and we are hoping to receive £2000 in matched funding, bringing the teal to £4160, well done to Maria and her team an extraordinary successful event.
We also won the Award for Best Charity in the Local Sophia’s Diary Awards Ceremony
