Trafford residents are being invited to an afternoon tea party in Sale to raise money for the breast cancer charity Breast Cancer Now.

The event is being hosted by two-time breast cancer survivor Sylvia Pimlott at Trafford Housing Trust’s New Hay Court on Egerton Drive, near Waterside.  Starting at midday on Saturday 25 June, guests can enjoy a full afternoon tea for £10 per person, or donate what they can to enjoy sandwiches, cakes and a selection of drinks.

Raffle prizes include craft gin and wine hampers, alongside £50 worth of fresh flowers.

Sylvia said: “I am incredibly grateful to all the doctors and nurses that have ensured I have twice recovered from breast cancer, and I am now really keen to be able to thank them and to give something back.  It would be great if as many people as possible could join us for afternoon tea and help to raise money for a really good cause.”
