ANYONE for tea?

Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift that helps a local charity?

Jennifer Perry at Room Forty – mobile afternoon tea emporium – is helping St Rocco’s with its charity fundraiser this Mother’s Day.

The Woolston businesswoman serves homemade afternoon tea on matching vintage china trios – cup, saucer and side plate.

Over the past eight years, Jen has amassed dozens and dozens of mismatched vintage crockery that she is unable to use when serving her afternoon teas.

So, Jen is packaging up matching cup, saucer and side plate trios and selling them for £3.50 to raise money for St Rocco’s.

Jen said: “There’s no doubt about it – tea tastes better from a china cup and saucer!

“I adore vintage china but unfortunately can’t use mismatched sets.

“They are all beautiful cups, saucers and plates, and some are more than 80 years old.

“I decided to package each trip up, wrapped in cellophane, and sell them for people to buy as Mother’s Day gifts and help St Rocco’s at the same time.”

Every penny of the money raised will go to St Rocco’s and the china sets can be bought and collected from Jen at her Woolston home, the Padgate kitchen showroom JD Kitchens or Jen’s Room Forty crafternoon tea on Saturday, March 9 at Lymm Village Hall.
