Watling Court Extra Care Scheme in Gravesend hosted a charity tea afternoon for the local community, raising £280 for MacMillan Cancer Support.


Staff and supporters of the scheme were busy baking plenty of delicious treats ahead of the tea afternoon, which took place at the extra care scheme in Ifield Way on Friday 9th October.


Guests were treated to a traditional tea of delicate finger sandwiches, sausage rolls and vol-au-vents before tucking in to a cup of tea and enjoying the variety of scrumptious bakes on offer.


And there were plenty of cakes for guests to try; from zesty lemon drizzle and carrot cake to raspberry and chocolate sponge and flavoured cupcakes, they were spoilt for choice.


Helen Goulding, scheme manager of Watling Court said: “Although we are a charity, we still like to do our bit for other charities. Everyone has been affected by cancer at some point in their lives, so MacMillan is a great cause.


“The tea afternoon was a great success and a wonderful opportunity for everyone to get together and have a natter whilst raising money for a very worthy cause. We’d like to thank everyone who baked a cake, bought a cake and helped us on the day.”


Staff also hosted a raffle at the event to help raise even more money for the cause, bringing the total to £280.40p.
