Anyone for tea?

by Banana Crumble | Feb 11, 2019

On Saturday 9th February, Banana Crumble hosted an afternoon tea where they handed over their Cheque for £5000 which was the money raised last year for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and also to add more funds and to help raise money for their 2019 total. The event was attended by 30 family and friends as well as Jess Nickless from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Finger sandwiches and cakes were consumed by everyone a plenty with cups of tea, coffee and glasses of prosecco to wash down all of the food.

On the day we handed over the money Banana Crumble raised in its first year for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which was totalled at £5000. The money was raised by our own fund-raising events, unclaimed prizes and donations by some of our winners and other organisations, including the Southend Round Table who kindly donated £500. Our Chief Banana and Jess both said some words on the day thanking everyone for attending as well as Asda who helped the event by donating scones and clotted cream for the day. Jess told everyone that the £5000 could cover the CF Trust’s telephone helpline for over a month and what a huge difference this amount of money would make and how grateful they were to Banana Crumble for making such a large donation.

The afternoon ended up raising an additional £310 for the Trust which will go towards our total raised this year..

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the day, to the CF Trust, Asda and all those who helped with cakes and making the afternoon such great fun.
