A POPULAR annual event in Ellesmere’s summer calendar has taken place recently in aid of Hope House.

Ellesmere Friends of Hope House Strawberry Tea event took place on Sunday, July 14 at the Town Hall and guests were treated to homemade scones, delicious jams and strawberries by the bowlful with lashings of cream.

A total of £138 was raised from the event which was sponsored by Tesco Ellesmere and Co-op Food Ellesmere.

Guests were able to support the charity further by taking part in a raffle and by making donations for handmade woollen items knitted by one of the members, Lilian Ashley.

The Ellesmere Friends Group are always on the lookout for new members to join them – anyone wishing to become part of the group please call Lynsey Kilvert on 07800 581698 or by email: lynsey.kilvert@hopehouse.org.uk

Hope House relies on communities to keep its services running and without the amazing local support, they simply would not exist.
