The Discovery Award Group of Stone & District U3A recently held a Strawberry Tea to raise money for “Fresh Hair” —-the salon at the Cancer Unit at the Royal Stoke University Hospital which provides wigs when one loses hair due to chemotherapy. It is a charity and is run on voluntary donations. Founder member of the salon, Fiona Ford gave a brief talk about her work.

The event was held on the outskirts of Hilderstone village and the weather was kind. A pleasant afternoon was enjoyed by everyone, and just over £1,000 was raised from admission tickets, various stalls and a raffle. More than 60 people attended and made light work of scones, strawberries and cream.
