Local Diggle resident Vicki Harrington recently organised a tea and cake party to raise money for Pennine Pen Animal Rescue and Manchester Dog’s Home.
The event, which was held in Vicki’s garden, was well attended and raised £1050 to be split equally between both charities.
The wide selection of home baked cakes and glorious summer weather attracted visitors from across Saddleworth. Local artist, John Hewit, said, “It’s a great event and I’m pleased to be able to contribute to the valuable work these charities do.”
Vicki said, “It’s always hard work but it’s worth the effort. Visitors have been very generous. I don’t charge for the tea and cakes, I only asked for a donation.”
Pennine Pen was founded in 2001 by Michael Waugh with the aim of alleviating animal suffering and neglect. Michael said, “I want to help those who can’t help themselves.”
