Vintage Teas raise over £800 for CAFOD

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the Woodchester Priory CAFOD Group in Clifton  helped one of their members, Tina Hathaway, to host her annual Vintage Tea Party in her lovely garden not far from Nailsworth.

CAFOD Parish Volunteer Angela Middleditch reports:

“We were blessed with a reasonable afternoon on Sunday and a fantastic sunny afternoon on Monday and over the two days, about 170 people came to support us.  Donations and the proceeds from the raffle amounted to £1600, half of which will go to CAFOD, and the other half going to another worthy charity.  Many thanks to all who helped with baking beforehand and helping over the weekend; to all our lovely ‘customers’ and most of all to Tina and Barry for the use of their house and garden”.
