Tasty treats were served up during a successful fundraising event at Ayton Village Hall.

The tea party was organised by the Ayton branch of the Yorkshire Countrywomen’s Association in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Marie Curie fundraiser Michael Streets (pictured) said: “The group usually holds a tea party for us each year and this has been going on for quite a few years now.

“The event was really well attended and there were lots of lovely home-made cakes on offer, along with tea and coffee.”

Mr Streets said that the tea party was very well organised, as everyone was given a ticket and asked to choose a cake that took their fancy.

He added: “Everyone had been very busy baking as there were lots of cakes to choose from!”

The event also featured a tombola and bric a brac stall, plus a Marie Curie information stand. Many people stayed all afternoon and made the most of the chance to catch up with friends.

The tea party raised £278, which will go towards the charity’s local nursing service. The service provides end-of-life nursing care for people who wish to be looked after in their own home.
