KETTLES were boiled and delicious cakes were laid out when the Breast Cancer Haven hosted a Big Tea Cosy tea party.
The event saw visitors raised almost £1,000 in aid of the St Bernards Road centre.
There was plenty on offer including games, crafts and a raffle as well as the obligatory cuppa and slice of cake.
The Big Tea Cosy is a national fundraising campaign in support of people affected by breast cancer including those in Solihull.
Adel Botfield, fundraising assistant, said: “This will enable us to fund a personalised programme of one-to-one support for someone affected by breast cancer, which can make a huge difference to their quality of life.
“We were delighted to see so many members of the local community in attendance and are so grateful for their support.
“It was a great way to kick off our Big Tea Cosy campaign and we hope we’ve inspired the local community to host their own tea party this March so we can be there for everyone who needs us.”
Observer photographer, Jon Mullis, was on hand to capture these pictures of the tea party.
