AN AFTERNOON tea will take place at Fairfield Village Hall to raise funds for Libby Mae’s Little Angels.
The event, organised by the Fairfield Village Community Association (FVCA), will be held between 3pm and 5pm on August 16.
Tickets, which include a glass of prosecco, at £7 in advance from Fairfield Post Office or £7.50 on the day.
Sandwiches are being provided courtesy of the Swan Inn, Fairfield, and members of the community will be baking cakes.
For catering numbers the organisers would prefer it if tickets were purchased in advance.
The FVCA is also seeking top raffle prizes that help raise much needed funds.
The charity’s founders Charlotte and Richard Sharratt will be giving a presentation on the organisation which was launched in memory of Libby Mae who passed away in May 2013 at just two weeks old.
Since then the charity has been raising funds for medical equipment for neonatal units across the Midlands – from ventilators to aid breathing and incubators to infusion pumps for fluids and monitors.
Julie Baldwin, from the Fairfield Village Community Association, said a new life deserved the best start.
“As something that is close to my own heart and to those of friends around me this charity gives the chance of hope to those who need it at such stressful and difficult times.
“It’s our honour and privilege to be able to support such a worthy and local cause – please help by joining us for afternoon tea and hear more about the great work Libby Mae’s little angels do.”
Charlotte said: “We were delighted when Julie contacted us to say that they wished to support us.
“I’m excited to meet everyone and tell them about our amazing cause and how we help save babies lives.”
