A Beautiful Day at Stody Lodge Gardens Raises Over £2,000

On Sunday 20th May 2018 we were pleased to serve tea, coffee and cakes in the stunning grounds of Stody Lodge to raise money for our charity.
The MacNicol family very generously support a different local charity at their annual May open days and we were delighted to be invited back for 2018.
A glorious day of sunshine welcomed visitors to the estate, who enjoyed the colours of the dramatic rhododendron and azalea gardens as well as an art exhibition in the grounds. 
We were very well-prepared and had been overwhelmed with support from local bakers and cafes who had donated cakes and snacks, including contributions from Little Haven Cafe, 7 Surrey Street Cafe, Mustard Cafe, Cafe Bar Marzano, Linzers Bakery, Cookies Cakes and Archer's Butchers.
Our team of staff and volunteers had a steady flow of customers throughout the afternoon and we were thrilled to raise a total of £2,155.
Thank you to everybody involved in such a successful day, including our wonderful volunteers, bakers and the Stody Estate team.
