Another traditional afternoon tea is being held in Corby to raise funds for a brother and sister with a rare genetic condition.

Mia Blakey-Tew, three, and Cory, one, have recently been diagnosed with RARS2 mutation which means they are partially-sighted and have limited hearing and mobility.

Their parents, Leanne Moir and Dean Blakey-Tew are raising funds to pay for therapy, equipment and adaptations to their home in Latimer Road, Corby.

A recent afternoon tea was held at Busby’s at Lodge Park Sports Centre, Shetland Way, Corby, to boost the fund and £300 was raised.

A second is being held on Monday, May 6, from 11am until 4pm.

Tea will be served in China cups, with homemade cakes and a selection of sandwiches.

There will also be a table top sale, crafts and vintage goods on offer.

Dean’s aunt Natalie Newby, who has organised the event, said: “I would like to thank everyone for supporting the last event and hope people will come along this bank holiday Monday and enjoy themselves.”
