Sue Ryder charity shop plans 1940s theme day

HUCKNALL’S Sue Ryder charity shop is hoping to boost funds with a 1940s-themed tea party.

The event is planned for Saturday August 18 at the Ogle Street shop, where volunteers are hoping to attract people to raise extra money for the good cause.

“It is an alternative way for us to collect extra cash for this worthwhile charity,” said store manager Magda Dawson. “There will also be a vintage car outside to add to the attractions on the day.”

Volunteers at the shop will be dressed in wartime clothes and serving tea the traditonal way, with dainty sandwiches and pieces of cake to anyone who wants to stop by and support the event.

Magda added: “We will also be holding a raffle with some fabulous prizes so it will be well worth dropping by and trying your luck.”

The first prize will be the chance to ride around Hucknall in the vintage car with two £20 vouchers for a new hairstyle, courtesy of Dudley’s Hair and Design, of Bulwell, as second prize as well as bottles of wine and many other goods up for grabs.

“We hope the community will come along and have a taste of nostalgia while supporting the charity in a way other than just buying something from the shop,” added Magda. “We are hoping it will be a great success.”
