Strawberry Tea

Staff Tea Party in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

 During the Summer Term, a letter from the charity Breast Cancer Care arrived at Rooks Heath College, inviting us to host a ‘Strawberry Tea’ in support of this very worthwhile cause.  What a great idea!  A chance for staff to relax together and enjoy a delicious tea, whilst raising money for an excellent charity!

Thursday 26th September was the date chosen – a little later than the suggested time-frame.  Fortunately, there was still a plentiful supply of strawberries on the supermarket shelves.  Geoff the Chef generously offered to bake his famously scrumptious scones and to supply cream; there was home-made jam; and staff were invited to consult their recipe books and get cooking.  Cakes included Ms Malins’s special Cake Pops, Ms Mordan’s Rocky Roads and a superb cake by Mrs Hayward.  Thank you to these budding chefs and to everyone who brought in food.

 In addition to a civilised afternoon tea, there was home-made jam on sale, and even a game to play, with a prize of chocolates, which was won by Science Technician Mrs McAnulty.  Many congratulations to her!

The afternoon was a great success and we raised the amazing sum of £204.84. Thank you to everyone who participated.
