AN array of tea and cakes were enjoyed by many at the St Margaret’s Hospice Time for Tea party. The event, which was held at the Baptist Hall in Burnham, raised £500 for the charity, and will to help enable local people to receive specialist care. St Margaret’s Hospice is a registered charity which has been at the heart of Somerset’s community, making each day count for 35 years by providing high quality, responsive, compassionate care to patients and their families facing a life shortening illness. Through medical expertise, nursing skills and specialist support services, they provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to over 3,200 patients and their families each year.
The tea party was organised by Burnham Freemasons and wives, and is in its 9th year of running.
In attendance and enjoying the homemade cakes was the Mayor of Burnham and Highbridge, Cllr Michael Clarke, Provincial Grand Master of Somerset, Stuart Hadler, and the Chairman of St Margaret’s Hospice, David Jenkins. Community fundraiser for St Margaret’s Hospice, Julie Draper, would like to thank Tony and Lynn Ward, and all their team of dedicated helpers for making the day such a success.
