Royal Tea Party

Each year, we arrange a date for our annual fundraiser and in 2018, it coincided with the Royal Wedding.  On Saturday 19th May, with the help of Absolutely Vintage China Hire, we transformed Oadby Baptist Church into a gorgeous tea room.

It was brilliant to welcome 80 people over the day, both young and old, and be able to provide them with a friendly, professional and mouth-watering experience. Our particular thanks goes to the enormously generous Rodda’s of Cornwall, who provided us with 100 pots of clotted cream and Tiptree Jam.

What set out as a fundraiser, we soon realised had turned out to be a lovely community event which we had the pleasure of arranging. These are some of the lovely comments we received on the day;

“Enjoyable for all”, “As good as a 5-star hotel” and “Great community feel.”

Finally, we need to thank all those who supported us, in prayer, by coming along, by volunteering to serve or bake, and by providing resources.

Our prayer for the event, was that people would receive the Lord’s blessing. As a team, we definitely felt this and we were so thankful to raise £600 for Reality Youth Project at the same time.  Thank you to all those wonderful people for their encouragement and donations.
