Garden party raises cash and a smile

A COMMUNITY group raised more than £400 in the sunshine on Saturday.

Bognor Tea and Chat held a garden party and more than 100 people turned out to support the group.

“We had a lovely day, with various stalls including refreshments and entertainment,” said Julie Geall, acting project organiser.

“Gorgeous weather, all enjoyed the event as a social aspect as well as raising £405.60. A big thank you to everyone who came and to those who supported and helped on the day.”

The party was held at Burlington retirement home, in Bognor Regis.

Tea and Chat caters for people more than 65-years-old with mental health needs.
