FUND-RAISER: Lunch event a huge success

The recently formed Morpeth Charity Events Team has held its first event under its new name.

A luncheon with food and floral art demonstrations was held at Stannington Village Hall for Henry Dancer Days, a local charity that supports young people with bone cancer and their families.

One hundred ladies enjoyed a two-course lunch and demonstrations by Sandra Dickinson, floral art, and Helen Moran, food, who gave their services free in support of the charity.

Members of the team donated all the food and Andrew Tebbutt, local councillor, gave and sold his homemade jams.

Special guest Carol Malia, trustee of Brave Hearts and Look North presenter, attended and drew the raffle.

A total of £2,147 was raised for Henry Dancer Days.

This will be used entirely to support young cancer sufferers and also to continue its distraction therapy work at the Great North Children’s Cancer Department at the RVI.

Henry Dancer Days would like to thank everyone who supported or were involved in this event.
