League of Friends

A spectacular garden walk and afternoon tea proved a recipe for success in Hanmer recently.

The Whitchurch branch of The League of Friends celebrated raising £1,128 for The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital when Lord and Lady Kenyon kindly opened their gates to the charity.

Delicious homemade sandwiches and cakes were served outside in Gredington courtyard where around a hundred League of Friends’ branch supporters enjoyed refreshments with an opportunity to take walks in the grounds. Complementing branch fundraising, members Annie Curran and Carol Aldridge set up a fine stall of plants, books, crafts and produce for visitors to buy.

“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves,” said Sheila Maddocks, chairman of The League of Friends to RJAH Whitchurch branch. “We sincerely thank Lord and Lady Kenyon for hosting the event and everyone who took part and supported us.”

Charity Events

All proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Society. All are welcome to eat in or take away.
