The recently opened Teaspoon Tea Company in The George Centre has raised £217.31 as part of Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party campaign.
On June 25, £1 from the sale of every pot of tea was donated to the charity by Teaspoon, while there was also a tea quiz testing customers’ knowledge and a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. Owner Pamela Merryweather said: “ We had a fantastic day, and want to say a big thank you to all who attended to make the day a success. The support of the local businesses with raffle prizes enabled us to raise lots of money for this worthy cause! We will definitely be holding a tea party next year.”
