It was a sunny, Friday afternoon in June, and Lockton Tea Rooms and Gallery, set in the beautiful North Yorkshire moors, opened their doors to kidney supporters for afternoon tea, to raise vital funds for research.
The proprietors, Janilaine and Kevin, delivered a fantastic afternoon tea for the event, and Janilaine hosted a silent auction of beautiful artwork. Kevin who is the chef at Lockton Tea Rooms and Gallery, had a kidney transplant over 10 years ago.
At the event, there was the silent auction, raffle prizes kindly donated by various people and organisations including a family day ticket for Scampton Estate at Malton, a family ticket for use on the North Yorks Railway, and entry to Burnby Hall at York.
Name the (Steiff) Teddy raffle was also drawn at the event. Tim Hogarth, one of our Patrons, donated the Steiff bear for fundraising. For £1 supporters chose a name that they thought Tim Hogarth may have called the bear. Unfortunately no one picked the winning name “Murray” so the raffle continued and the winning name was Henry.
Thank you for our supporters who made the event happen and who donated and attended on the day. We look forward to more happening in the North Yorkshire Moors!
In total, the event raised £814.50 and as they say “every penny helps”
