We’ve been saving this one up for a rainy day but it’s time to share the lovely pictures from Ellis & Partners (independent surveyors, valuers and property advisors in Bournemouth) 20th Anniversary summer vintage tea – especially since it’s been raining for what seems like the last few years! So, back in June we were asked to provide crockery and bunting and tablecloths and goodies for an afternoon tea to celebrate their anniversary – all in aid of Naomi House and jacksplace, hospices for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, which mean that they are unlikely to live to adulthood. What a great charity to support.
The day was fabulous and everyone had a wonderful time – there was Pimm’s, a vintage car, sweetie loveliness from Treats2eat and even a jazz band! And the guests were pretty special too – not just the lovely people from Ellis & Partners but even the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth indulged in the fun!
We do hope you enjoy the pictures!
Happy New Year everyone! We do hope this year brings you peace and happiness even though we currently seem to be wading through rain and mud at every turn! It can’t last, honestly…….. So to cheer us up we thought we’d share a few more photos from the lovely event we were involved in back in the summer with Julia’s House in Corfe Mullen.
Children’s charity Julia’s House (dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting conditions) wanted to say thank you to their volunteers as part of National Volunteers Week by holding a vintage tea at their hospice at Corfe Mullen.
With more than 100 volunteers supporting the charity – taking on work from fundraising to van driving; working in the Julia’s House shops, providing admin work and giving support at the hospice itself – there’s a huge range and potential for volunteering activity that is vital to the charity.
The vintage tea was an opportunity for employees from Julia’s House to say thank you – serving tea and scones to volunteers and showing them the facilities and work that takes place at the Corfe Mullen hospice.
