A TEA party for pensioners which has survived two world wars celebrated its centenary on Saturday.
From 1908 until the present day, Wooldale Old Folks Treat has provided an annual tea and entertainment afternoon for more than 200 elderly members of its community.
Over the years the treat has continued to flourish with an army of local volunteers and local fundraising efforts.
Former committee chairman Don Yates said: “The Wooldale Old Folks Treat still has the same importance it originally served. It provides an opportunity for elderly people to meet friends and acquaintances they haven’t seen for a while. With growing families living further from home, the elderly folk can still be left isolated.”
This year’s event was held at Holmfirth High School with over 200 pensioners attending the event.
A grand centenary concert was also put on for guests along with a special gift to mark their centenary year.
Fundraising takes place throughout the year with collections, raffles, a Christmas draw and harvest home event held within the local community.
