A vintage Christmas tea party is hoped to have raised more than £500 for a charity helping disabled people in Suffolk.
Event organiser and charitable cake-maker Sarah Moss, of the Bakehouse Bakery in Woodbridge, said the event went “really well” after more than a hundred people turned out in support of the Papworth Trust on Saturday.
“Thanks to everyone who turned out and volunteered - I could not have done it without your help,” she said.
Ticket-holders at St John’s Hall in Woodbridge were invited to dress in their finest vintage clothing while sampling a selection of Sarah’s traditional cakes.
Guests were also able to undergo a vintage make over with the hair and make-up expertise of local beautician Clare Swann.

The musical entertainment came from Kelly Pritchard of Vocally Vintage, and was said to have been a big hit with the guests. There was also a raffle offering a rage of “fantastic” prizes alongside stalls selling a range of crafts and gift ideas including modern and vintage goods,
Sarah will be visiting the Papworth Trust in January to lead a cake-making session for its service users, some of whom attended the afternoon’s event.
