Victorian tea fundraiser

Have your say

TAKE a trip back in time and help raise charity cash by calling in at a Victorian afternoon tea party.

Norma Roberts and Janet Tilley, advice co-ordinators for the The Stroke Association in Rotherham, are hosting the event between 1.30pm and 3.30pm on Saturday, September 3, at Greasbrough Public Hall on Coach Road, Greasbrough, Rotherham.

People will be able to buy traditional tea, cakes and sandwiches, take part in a raffle and play Victorian games such as bar skittles, Enigma & Riddles and Throwing Smiles.

There will also be a demonstration of how Victorian rag rugs were made.

Mayor of Rotherham, Coun Shaun Wright will also be attending to show his support.

Norma Roberts, of The Stroke Association, said: “We wanted to hold a Sip for Stroke fundraising event, and thought we’d turn back time and make it a traditional tea party!

“We will be in full Victorian costume for the whole day, kindly donated by Sha’waddys fancy dress in Barnsley.”
