A TEA party at the Wool and Wot Nots shop on Watnall Road, Hucknall, raised about £260 for the Marie Curie Cancer Fund.
A large group of people came together for the enterprising initiative and they included Moya Chetwynd, who works for the Marie Curie Nursing Service.
The event was well supported by Hucknall businesses. Donations included a tea urn, tea bags and sugar, a bouquet of flowers, a £10 gift voucher, £5 cash, three bottles of wine, cuddly toys, a picnic baket plus a baby doll and cot with accessories. Many of the items were raffled off.
Knitted and crocheted items were available from stalls and refreshments included cakes.
“So many people put a lot of time and trouble into making the tea party a success,” said Moya. “We were thrilled to bits with the response.”
She added that the group were looking into the possibility of making the tea party an annual event.
