A Huddersfield charity which supports sick children and their families has seen its latest appeal draw in more than £7,000.
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, which is based at Brackenhall, launched its Tea Party appeal on Yorkshire Day last month and residents and local businesses have got behind it to support the fundraising plea.
The charity held its own Mad Hatter’s tea party at Red House Museum in Gomersal.
Several hundred people attended with lots of children enjoying an Alphabet Treasure Hunt around the grounds.
With loads of other activities for the whole family everyone that took part had a great day and helped to contribute to nearly £1.8k of the overall amount raised.
Lisa Calvert, Community Fundraiser said: “This was a great day. It was fantastic how the community came together at such a wonderful local venue to have fun whilst raising vital funds to support Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.”
But the charity is also expecting funds to be topped up further still. Due to the unpredictable British weather, some parties were postponed until early September.
And if you missed out and fancy hosting a tea party anywhere - at home, work, coffee shops or church hall - and to bring the community together, contact the fundraising team for ideas of events you can get involved in.
