Great success for Marian's Tea Party

Moira Norwood - Secretary of Maisemore RDA Group - writes:


The tables were laid, sandwiches prepared with crusts removed, the cake table festooned with every variety you could imagine and RDA volunteers with teapots at the ready. The only thing missing were our 85 guests who had bought tickets. 

We didn’t have to wait long as people descended on Maisemore Village Hall. Some didn’t have a ticket.  Could we squeeze them in?  Of course we could, in a true Marian style.

There were plenty of smiles and laughter as we all remembered a very special person who gave so much of herself to whatever she was involved in.

Thank you to all who bought tea tickets, raffle tickets, gave donations, it raised just short of £1,500. The money is being donated to Cancer Research UK whose vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
