An afternoon well spent, with nibbles, a drink on arrival and beautifully decked stalls with handmade goods – with all ticket funds for charity.
Organised by kind-hearted charity worker, Annette Allan, the fundraiser was held at the Sweet Rose Ice Cream Parlour, Spennymoor.
Annette said: “The money raised supports and falls under the Ian Larnach Cancer Care Charities.
“Ian was my brother who died from Cancer. He set this charity up when he was first diagnosed and we fundraised for cancer charities together up to his death in 2019 and the family have continued to do so in his legacy.”
Raising a total of £509, the event was held on April 24, with the proceeds being split three ways – including a third each going to her workplace, the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP), to support its leading partnership project, Macmillan Joining the Dots and the Fawcett Trust.
Paula Spark, Macmillan Joining the Dots facilitator for South West Durham, said: “The donation will see Joining the Dots able to offer the people we support opportunities to make memories with their loved ones.
“Joining the Dots is a free service for those in County Durham who are age 18 and over that have been diagnosed with cancer, so support is really valuable as one in three people can be affected by cancer in their lifetime.”
