A traditional high tea has raised money for a charity which provides free treatments for people with serious illnesses.

Volunteers from the Harmony Therapy Trust hosted the event in their community garden in Victoria Street, Sheerness, on Sunday.

Almost 30 people went along to support the annual get-together, which has collected £214.

Refreshments, including finger sandwiches, pasta, cakes, trifle, jelly and much more were on offer.

Some of the trust’s happiness kits, which contain items, including a rubber to erase your mistakes, a heart to remember someone loves you and a coin so you are never broke, were also sold to help boost funds.

Pampered Chef rep Amanda Hoggins also hosted a party, selling kitchen equipment at her home in Marine Parade, Sheerness, on Saturday.

The money raised for the trust, which is the Times Guardian’s charity of the year for 2014, is yet to be counted.

Founder Dawn Cockburn said: “It was such a lovely day. I would like to say a big thank you to everybody who came along, made food and helped with the washing up.”
