Shadwell Tea Afternoon

August 21, 2015

The annual Shadwell YCA tea afternoon was held on Friday 21 August, in the Village Hall.    This was a week later than the normal meeting day because of the Flower Show.   It was a beautiful sunny afternoon perhaps that is why so many ladies and a few gentlemen came to the event, there were over 80 people present, friends from Shadwell and members from several of the neighbouring YCA and WI groups.   The Shadwell ladies had worked very hard and the hall looked lovely with the colourful table settings and the new strawberry patterned table cloths.   The charity for this year was the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the afternoon started with a short talk from a volunteer fund raiser from the charity.   The guests were then served with sandwiches, scones and homemade cakes and a never ending supply of Yorkshire tea.   Everyone seemed to be having a good time by the sound of the chattering and laughter.   The afternoon finished with an excellent raffle.   The event raised over £350 and with the addition of some gift aided donations, £491 was given to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
