The Lady Waterford Hall was the setting of the Northumberland committee’s Sunday lunch, which raised £1,600.
The hall was commissioned in 1860 by Louisa Anne, Marchioness of Waterford, and owner of the Ford Estate, to be used as a school. As an artist, Lady Waterford decorated the interior with biblical scenes to aid the students’ education. Now, the building is used as a village hall.
Around 80 supporters from around the county dined in the historic hall, enjoying the art.
Sally Conner, regional manager for the North East, said: “I’d like to thank Lord and Lady Joicey for allowing us to use this beautiful venue. Lord Joicey is a great supporter of R.A.B.I and his kindness is greatly appreciated.”
