People are being encouraged not to be late for this very important date on Saturday, August 20 from noon until 4.30pm.

A big chocolate tea party is being arranged by tireless fundraiser Terri Reed at Eternity on the Trafalgar Industrial Estate with funds being split between two charities.

She said: "I am looking forward to seeing you all next week.

"Please bring your picnic blanket and join us for a community get together.

"Finally, with Covid-19 and having strokes I had to postpone my event twice but I'm back.

"Every year I host a big chocolate tea party for your little ones, and this year I'm stepping it up by hosting an Alice in Wonderland themed event for friends and family to join me to help raise money for the Sick Children's Trust and Downham Market food bank."

Terri has spoken of why she hosts the annual event and said: "When my daughter Millie was born nine weeks early, weighing just three pounds, I stayed at hospital for a week so I could see her day and night while she got stronger.

"It cost £30 a night to run the room that I stayed in while Millie was in hospital.

"I like to raise money to help Sick Children's Trust as its close to my heart."

The event will have a fancy dress competition for children and adults with prizes for the best dressed, a raffle and tombola plus an auction of an Alice in Wonderland print.

There will also be refreshments on sale, rainbow corner, karaoke, a disco and maybe a special visitor who hopefully will not be late.

Tickets are £2 per person or £5 for a family and available from Terri on mobile number 07597 632459
