WMC: September 2017
Eileen is organising one of her famous tea parties. This time the theme of the tea party is "Rock n Roll" so expect some "rock" cakes and some swiss "rolls"! The tea party is 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, Lucia, is currently walking from John O Groats to Lands End to raise money for this charity. Tickets are £5 and can be obtained from Eileen, Julie or Ann. The tea will consist of sandwiches, cake and scones. There will be a raffle and a gift stall. There will also be music from the rock n roll years and some of the helpers will be dressed appropriately — so feel free to unearth your drain pipes or 50s dress!
