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.

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.
