Cuppa For Carli Afternoon Tea raises over £1,500!!!

A HUGE thank you to each and every one of you who came along to A Cuppa For Carli afternoon tea on Saturday.

It was so fantastic to be able to gather everyone for the tea in person again. We’ve really missed being able to bring everyone together to celebrate Carli’s birthday and continue our afternoon tradition with you all. 

We’re so glad so many of you were able to join us for a wonderful afternoon remembering our dear friend Carli. It means so much to us that people come along every year, as well as some new faces to enjoy a very tasty afternoon tea and to catch up and chat.
