Grand Afternoon Tea

SI Beverley and District Grand Afternoon Tea

On Sunday 6th October President Anne Lane and members of SI Beverley and District joined forces with the Tickton Village Hall Committee to hold a fundraising Grand Afternoon Tea in aid of Dementia Support East Riding. Soroptimist Liz Hallett worked hard to source lots of donated food items and fabulous raffle prizes. One hundred and ten tickets were sold, almost immediately, which had members busy producing 440 identically sized finger sandwiches on the morning of the event. Sadly the day before the event our scone donor was taken ill, but Liz Hallett powered up her kitchen and seamlessly took over scone production. Top table guests were the Mayor and Mayoress of Beverley, the Mayor of East Yorkshire and her Consort and the Vicar of Tickton. Liz Hallett gave a humorous talk about some of her experiences as the former local District Nurse, raising many smiles and memories of long departed local characters. A total of £1,934 was raised and a good time enjoyed by all, even the ladies doing the washing up!
