On 15 May, R.A.B.I’s Essex Committee organised a special afternoon tea, complete with an antiques expert to provide information about items.
Over 120 guests arrived on a lovely sunny afternoon to a glass of fizz and catch up with friends. Each table of guests brought along one or two items to be assessed and valued. Afterwards afternoon tea was enjoyed including sandwiches, cakes, scones and plenty of tea. Jam and cream was donated by Tiptree and Rodda’s.
The afternoon concluded with a raffle and auction of items and raised an impressive £1,800.
Many thanks to the Bosworths for the loan of the marquee.
