It’s afternoon tea and cakes with a difference at St Peter’s Church in Gildersome, this Saturday (Feburary 1).
In aid of Leprosy Missions Funds, from 2pm-4pm, a donation of new boxed sets of children’s books will be on sale including some classics with a wide genre of reading. Organiser Ann Johnson said: “Our book stall is always popular amongst the afternoon tea customers, but these new children’s books should attract a wider range of visitors. Tea and cakes is only £1.20 with a chance to buy these books at a reduced price”. The event is to raise funds for the Leprosy Mission. Usually associated with biblical stories, leprosy is still being fought in many countries across the world.
