Fundraising is a piece of cake for Caritas Care as we hosts our third Afternoon Tea Party.
We opened our doors at Plungington Community Centre on Saturday 26th March between 12.30pm and 4.30pm and invited the local community to join in the fun while enjoying a cuppa and a homemade cake.
The centre welcomed over 100 guests over the course of the afternoon who were treated to cakes, a hot drink, vintage music and a fabulous raffle.
Susan Swarbrick, CEO at Caritas Care said, “It was wonderful to see members of the community, our colleagues and the people we support socialising and having fun. It was a great atmosphere with people of all ages relaxing and enjoying the event”.
The staff at Caritas Care worked really hard decorating and showing off their excellent baking skills with a fantastic arrangement of cakes, which went down a treat!”
Caritas Care teamed up with Lancashire Tea, who provided 1100 teabags for the event, Rowlands & Hames insurance brokers who contributed £150 to the cost of the event as well as Tom Parker Ltd, Preston who kindly donated £100. Morrisons supermarket provided the luxury hamper as first prize for the raffle.
Becky Pow, Compliance Officer and one of the event organisers said, “ I’m so proud to have been part of an event that has brought people and communities together. The atmosphere was amazing and just what Caritas Care is all about. I’m really looking forward to next year’s event!”
An Afternoon Tea with Caritas Care is an annual event, which has been running since 2019. Unfortunately, it couldn’t take place last year due to restrictions, but is now back bigger and better than ever!
The fun doesn’t stop with the tea party! Watch out for more events from Caritas Care at Plungington Community Centre later in the year with the return of our Fashion Show!
