The Deputy Mayor of Barnsley joined supporters from across the borough to host our ‘Afternoon Tea’ fundraising event at the Town Hall earlier this month, raising over £1,100.
Councillor Linda Burgess mingled with guests during an afternoon of cakes, drinks and music, and entertainment including tombola’s, raffles, quizzes, and games including a beetle drive.
Sue Miller, income generation manager for Barnsley Hospice, said: “We were delighted to welcome Cllr Burgess and ladies from across the town to this special event. It was a great turnout and a really fun afternoon, with an amazing £1,113 raised to help us care for patients and their families.”
The success of the event has secured it a place on our annual fundraising calendar and we’re already looking forward to next year’s party.
