WMC: October 2017
A fantastic afternoon was enjoyed by one and all with over 90 people turning up to one of Eileen's famous tea parties.
The theme of this tea party was "Rock n Roll" , in aid of the charity Rock 2 Recovery who help the fight against stress in our armed forces, veterans and their families.
Eileen's grand-daughter, Luccia, is currently walking from John O' Groats to Lands End to raise money for this charity. We were informed that she was currently 30 miles south of Edinburgh, en-route to Gretna Green.
With best china being used, we were constantly being supplied with tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes. A sumptuous feast indeed!
There was also a raffle, a gift stall and cake stall.
Music from the rock 'n' roll years was played in the background, there was a music quiz and some of the helpers were dressed in 1950's clothing.
Eileen was thrilled to be able to announce that the event raised £1,051.58.
A huge thank you to all those who were involved and everyone who came along to support the Luccia
