A charity cream tea afternoon raised more than £250 for St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice this week.
The afternoon was held at Rookery Manor in Edingworth and raised a total of £262 for St Margaret’s Hospice, which offers compassionate care to people across Somerset.
The event marked the first in a line of fundraising activities organised by the wedding venue for St Margaret’s, having named it as its chosen charity this year.
Following the event, the hospice’s Sedgemoor fundraiser Julie Draper visited the hotel to pick up the money raised from sales manager Simon Page.
Ms Draper told the Mercury: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Rookery Manor for choosing to support St Margaret’s and to all that attended on the day.
“The money will go directly to helping St Margaret’s Hospice make each day count for patients and families facing a life-limiting illness.”
