Adlington Afternoon Tea - East Cheshire Hospice

Adlington Afternoon Tea

It is not too late to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in the beautiful surroundings of Adlington Hall. Volunteers from East Cheshire Hospice are providing hot drinks and homemade cakes between 2 pm and 5 pm each Sunday during August.

All proceeds are donated to the charity which accepted an invitation from Adlington Hall to use its traditional tearoom in the main building to raise funds. Guests do not need to book teas and if they want can also pay to stroll through the hall and picturesque gardens at one of England’s finest country homes.

The 2,000-acre estate has been the ancestral home of the Legh family for more than seven centuries and Camilla Legh is a Hospice vice president. The Hospice, which also has a stall selling handmade goods, is holding its memory walk at Adlington Hall on March 25 next year. The first afternoon tea attracted around 50 guests and raised £306 for the Hospice.

Community Fundraiser Carley Macey said: “We’re really excited to be back out in the community raising vital funds for the care we provide. “It’s been a difficult year, as it has been for many people, and the fantastic support from our community has got us though. “We want to thank Adlington Hall for inviting us to use their tearoom which enables us to spread awareness about our services. “We hope everyone who attends enjoys the amazing homemade cakes lovingly made by our volunteers and want to thank guests for supporting your local hospice.”

The Hospice’s Macclesfield support group held a coffee morning at Gawsworth Methodist Church.

Meanwhile, the Hospice is on the lookout for community volunteers for a number of roles, including joining a support group.

Carley said: “We’re always looking for volunteers to help with community fundraising and we have support groups across our catchment area. “These are sociable welcoming groups  and we also have other roles such as volunteer cake bakers, collection box monitors and community event volunteers for things like event and market stalls.”
