The Haddenham Cream Tea event at the Tythe Barn on Sunday 21st May raised a fabulous £2,710 for Florence Nightingale Hospice.
The event was organised by the Haddenham Community Fundraising Group, led by the tireless Angela Hart.
As well as a spread of delicious cakes and bakes, there was musical entertainment and a flower stall, and some huge hampers were up for grabs in the Grand Spring Draw.
"Thank you to everyone in Haddenham who organised, served, provided musical entertainment, bought tickets, ate cakes and drank tea, and tried their luck in the Grand Spring Draw and the tombola to raise this amazing amount for the Hospice," said Emma Carroll, Community Fundraising Manager at Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.
