A fundraising afternoon tea held by a Barley care home has raised more than £300 for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance charity.
With cakes galore, a bric-a-brac stall and tombola, residents and friends had a lovely afternoon at Margaret House Residential and Dementia Care Home raising money for the cause.
Jeanie Philips, fundraising co-ordinator for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, came along to join in and receive a cheque from Thomas Kelly - proprietor of Margaret House. She said: "It costs £9 million every year to cover all costs and aircraft operations, with only limited support from the government we rely upon the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex and Hertfordshire to remain operational and keep saving lives - we can't fly without you."
