Afternoon tea gives boost to breast cancer charity
More than £400 was raised at an afternoon tea to help people with breast cancer.
The Railway Tavern in Yaxham Road hosted the fundraiser on Sunday, September 5 in support of Breast Cancer Now, which funds research into the disease and care for people who are going through it.
The pub’s landlord Paul Sandford said the event was well attended and featured a cake stall and a raffle.
Mr Sandford said: “We had a ‘pin the cherry on the bakewell tart’ competition, and we had some local cake bakers prepare us a few cakes.”
He said £401 was raised.
