Willowbrook Hospice’s Living Well building recently played host to two Festive Tea Parties, raising more than £5, 000 for the Prescot based hospice
The tea parties organised by local fundraising group The Non-Stoppers saw over 150 guests enjoying sandwiches, cakes and scones over a brew or two.
The Non-Stoppers was formed in 2001 by Sheila Jones from Rainhill to help raise funds for Willowbrook, which cared for her husband Eric who died in August 2000 after being diagnosed with bowel cancer.
In addition to the Festive Tea Parties, Sheila and The Non-Stoppers organise Willowbrook’s Christmas Grotto as well as produce a beautiful range of handcrafted home accessories which they sell at local fetes, fayres and craft events throughout the year.
Sheila said: “This year’s Festive Tea Parties raised over £5,000 for the hospice and were a complete sell-out for weeks in advance. There was a lovely festive atmosphere in the room and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
