A DETERMINED fundraising group delivered more than 100 afternoon teas to raise an impressive £1,500 for Macmillan.

In pre-Covid times, a Ladies’ Lunch held at the Golden Lion Hotel in Northallerton is the jewel in the crown of the Macmillan Northallerton Fundraising Committee's events.

The committee members were determined to continue to raise funds when the event was cancelled for the second year running because of the pandemic.

Instead, a group of members delivered over 100 afternoon teas to supporters in Northallerton and Thirsk, raising an incredible £1,500.

Lesley Plummer, committee chairwoman, said: “We were thinking of ways we could support Macmillan, one committee member suggested we deliver afternoon teas during a catch-up on Zoom, everyone loved the idea.

“The idea of delivering afternoon teas felt like the perfect way we could be together in spirit, while being apart this year.”

The 124 afternoon teas were supplied by TranquiliTea Catering, based in Thirsk.
