Thank you to everyone who supported the afternoon tea event at Mount House last week. Over sixty people went along to enjoy the cream tea and homemade cakes. A tiring but enjoyable afternoon for the organisers, but well worth it for The Admiral Nurses home care team with the £853 that was raised. A big Thank you to Lynda and Richard Maude-Roxby for the use of your beautiful home.
