Come to our Afternoon Anniversary Chari-Tea

If you love afternoon tea, book a place for our Afternoon Anniversary Chari-Tea.

We’re hosting the event on Tuesday, June 20 from 3pm until 5pm to celebrate our 20th anniversary and to raise money for our two charities of the year.

Sue Burley, a waitress at Rumwell Farm Shop’s Cafe, gets ready for the Afternoon Anniversary Chari-Tea.

Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, said: “We would like to invite people from the area to our very special Afternoon Anniversary Chari-Tea. This is to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary and to also raise money for St. Margaret’s Hospice and Escape Support Group.

“The afternoon tea will take place in our cafe and will cost £9.95. One pound from each ticket sale will go to St. Margaret’s Hospice and Escape. The cafe will be decorated with table cloths, flowers and cake stands to really give the English afternoon tea feel.

“We will also be hosting a guess the weight of the cake competition for £1 a go with all the money raised being donated to the charities. The person who guesses the correct weight or the nearest guess to the weight will win the cake to take home. The cake will be made by our fabulous cake maker, Sharon Ware, who is also our Kitchen Manager.

“Booking for this event is essential, please call 01823 461 599 and select option four or email”

St. Margaret’s Hospice as a charity, has been at the heart of Somerset’s community, for more than 37 years, delivering high quality, responsive and compassionate care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness.

Last year St. Margaret’s Hospice, which is based in Bishops Hull, cared for more than 3,200 people across Somerset. To provide this care they need to raise in excess of £7.5 million. Without the generous support of the community, thousands of people facing the challenge of a life-limiting illness would struggle to receive the care and support they need.

Escape Support Group, which is based in in Taunton, has been supporting families who have a child, or children, with disabilities or specific individual needs in the Somerset area for 17 years.

Escape’s main aim is to provide fun activities, allowing children the opportunity to experience a positive childhood where they are integrated fully, and are able to share experiences that will enhance and enrich their lives, which other children and families may take for granted.

The Afternoon Anniversary Chari-Tea will take place at the Rumwell Cafe on Tuesday, June 20 from 3pm until 5pm. Booking is essential.
