Charity has a vintage fundraising idea


A


local charity which provides help and support to people with disabilities is


appealing for people to help fundraise by putting on a very British event – a vintage tea party. Charity Demand, based in Mallard Road, have


been providing care and support for disabled people since 1980 and last year helped a record number of 3654 people. Since there has been a reduction in money


given to charities from trusts and foundations, Demand is appealing to locals to help raise vital funds. The disabled charity has launched a ―hold your


own vintage tea party‖ campaign, inviting people to have fun while fundraising. Demand‘s regional fundraising manager


Denise Gillies said: ―I love all things vintage and I have been to afternoon tea in the past and just loved it. ―It is a very popular pastime and it just


seemed the perfect way to encourage fundraising. ―I have been in touch with author Angel


Adoree who wrote a guide for tea parties, The Vintage Tea Party Book, and asked her permission to use it as a guide for the charity fundraiser. ―She was lovely and was more than happy for


us to use her book; she even gave us additional books to give away for free to the first five people who host a party.‖ Denise will provide advice, support and
