Beechwood Hotel North Walsham’s strawberry tea raises �2,000 for Breast Cancer Care

A strawberry tea at North Walsham's Beechwood Hotel has raised �2,000 for Breast Cancer Care.

Some 120 guests attended the event, on the hotel's lawns, where they tucked into scones

baked by Beechwood chefs, Norfolk strawberries supplied by local farmers, and tea from Taylor's of Harrogate.

A jazz singer and guitarist entertained, champagne corks were heard to be popping and a grand raffle, with prizes sponsored by Fortnum and Mason of Piccadilly, featured a wicker

hamper packed with food.

was a private house and a doctor's surgery.
