Charity tea party in Kingswinford raises £700
2:29pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Local
A TEA party at a Kingswinford chemist raised £700 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The event took place at Lad Chemist, Madeley Road on Wednesday September 4.
Visitors enjoyed tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes and were given advice on healthy living.
Owner Vijay Lad said: “We had a great day, blessed with nice sunny weather, which generated a lot of interest from the local community who came out to support a worthwhile cause.”
Mr Lad was feeling brave on the day as he and shop manager, Nash Lad volunteered to have their legs and back waxed to raise extra funds.
The single highest donation on the day won a tea for two at the Houses of Parliament courtesy of Dudley South MP Chris Kelly.
The prize was won by DE pharmaceuticals, one of the chemist’s drug suppliers following a £200 donation.
