Charity afternoon tea champions volunteers

Scores of charity representatives came together at the invitation of Hatton Court Hotel yesterday, to be thanked for each other's efforts for supporting Gloucestershire's communities.

Punchline-Gloucester.com was humbled to be invited along to the event by Steve Collins, group sales director for The Hatton Collection, to cover the event and show our continued support for charities across the county.

Mr Collins came up with the idea to host such an event after building up a wide collection of charity contacts over the years.

He said: "I wanted to do something by way of saying a big thank you to all of the local volunteers who have worked tirelessly over many years and offer them a free afternoon tea.

"The acceptance of invites from volunteers and managers has been extremely positive."

Charities in attendance included Gloucestershire Age UK, SSAFA Armed Forces Charity, The Hollie Gazzard Trust, MS Society, Longfield Hospice, Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity, Tesco Community Champions, The James Hopkins Trust, Footsteps Counselling and Care, The Pied Piper Appeal and Hope for Tomorrow.

Representatives from each charity were then given the opportunity to speak about the work they do, and their fundraising efforts to support those in need.

Punchline says, It's great to see so many charities doing great things for people of all ages across the county.
