The mayor of Royston is inviting people living in the town to a charity tea party.

Ben Lewis is asking people to join him next Saturday, January 23, at the Market Hill Rooms in Fish Hill in aid of Home-Start Royston and South Cambridgeshire and the Mayor’s Community Trust Fund.

Expect a craft table and face painting at the popular Snowflake Tea Party which runs from 10am until 12.30pm.

Ben said: “Cake is a great way to entice people into donating to a worthy charity. Who knows...maybe I might even bake something!”

The event will support the Home-Start Snowflake Appeal.

As part of the challenge, people are invited to post a snowflake-themed photo, face-painting or a snowflake cake on Facebook and nominate three friends to do the same. Text SNOW26 £3 to mobile number 70070 to donate £3 or more.

The idea behind the campaign is that each family is as unique and fragile as a snowflake.
