Pupils and staff braved the cold weather and the snow to make it to Godolphin last Saturday for the 30th Annual Tea Party for members of local Alzheimer’s charities.
The girls entertained our guests with music and poetry, and then served a delicious traditional tea. We ended with a sing-song for all.
Head of Douglas House, Olivia Sparkhall, said, ‘it is a great privilege to be able to put on this event for our local community. I know how much our guests appreciate coming to Godolphin to be entertained by the girls, and to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea.’
Former Head of Douglas, Philippa Loxton said, ‘I set up the tea party 30 years’ ago when I was Head of Douglas and I am so pleased Olivia has continued with the tradition.’
Olivia Sparkhall presented cheques to representatives from Alzheimer’s charities totalling £1092 which has been raised by the House over the past year.
Kate Western said, ‘I wanted to thank you and the girls so very much for a super tea party and concert on Saturday. Our members thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and it really brightened up the afternoon. The students had obviously put a great deal of effort into their performances and we really loved listening to them all. Lastly, thank you for all your hard work in fundraising for our local groups, it is so appreciated by us all.’
