Alan and Jo Booth held an open garden party last Saturday afternoon to raise money for The Rowans Hospice, a charity that offers specialist care to those with life-limiting illnesses.

Jo said: ‘It is the first time that we have done this event, and I think that it went really well.

‘We did it in aid of The Rowans. We have quite a large garden, but it isn’t just for show – we wanted to share it with everyone else in the local area.

‘Both Alan and I are in our 70s and wanted to do something for the community.

‘Some of the team from Loud and Proud were serving the tea – we also had a wide variety of cakes and flowers available, through they all seemed to go rather quickly.’

‘With the suggested donation of £2 for a cup of tea and some cake, we have managed to raise around £130 for the charity.’
