TEA, home-made cakes and soothing music was a recipe for success at a fundraising tea party.

The event was organised by the Kettering branch of the charity Save the Children and was held at St Michael’s Church in Garfield Street in the town.

Visitors enjoyed a waitress service and a pianist provided the background music.

Sue Lynch, a branch committee member and co-ordinator of the party, said: “It was a great success and we were packed out.

“We raised £500, which was brilliant.

“On behalf of the branch, I would like to thank everyone who came along and supported the tea party and all those people who donated raffle prizes.

“I would also like to thank everyone who helped out on the day. People really enjoyed themselves and we raised a terrific amount for the charity.”
