Prospect Hospice supporters Christine and Bob brought over 100 members of their local community together and raised £690 for the charity by hosting an afternoon tea.
Having recently moved to Purton they thought that an afternoon tea would be a great way of getting the local community together in aid of the local hospice.
They saw that the village were great supporters of the hospice and got in touch with the fundraising team for a Make a Brew, Make a Difference coffee morning pack.
The event which took place in September had good weather which allowed everyone to enjoy their afternoon tea in the garden. Christine and Bob decorated their home with bunting, Prospect Hospice buckets and banners and had cream tea style china.
Christine said: “I was blown away by the support of the local community in Purton who donated raffle and tombola prizes, who donated cakes, and over 100 people turned up on the day to support our event raising money for Prospect Hospice.”
She would like to thank three ladies for their spontaneous and much needed support with washing up and collecting empty cups and plates.

Community fundraiser Hollie Ricketts added: “I would like to thank Christine and her husband Bob for their fantastic support of the hospice, to all local businesses and individuals who supported the event with prizes for the raffle and tombola and to the local community of Purton and surrounding villages who came along on the day and donated so generously to the hospice.”
