Turriff Tea & Tipples Event Committee Presents Children’s Charity With Cheque for £5,000

Local children’s charity Charlie House was presented with a cheque for £5,000 this week following a Summer fundraising event in Turriff.

‘Tea & Tipples In Turriff’, which was held on Sunday 29thJuly at the Turriff Show marquee, raised £10,218 in total. The funds were shared between Charlie House, The Talking Banffie & Turra Talk Association and Turriff District Agricultural Association. 

The event, which kicked off the 2018 Turriff Show at the Haughs, saw 260 guests treated to a prosecco reception, afternoon tea, shopping event, raffle auction, dancing and entertainment, including an acrobat and fire performer

Susan Crighton, Director of fundraising for Charlie House, says, “We are very grateful to the Turriff committee for choosing us as a charity beneficiary. This hugely successful event has supported several organisations as a result and the money raised will enable us to continue to support babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions, and their families, in the North-east of Scotland.”

Sarah Sleigh, event organiser, says, “We would like to thank the Turriff community for their attendance and support of the event. A great time was had by all and we are so pleased to support such worthy beneficiaries as a result.” 

Julie Mackie, co-organiser of the event says, “We had heard the great work which Charlie House carries out and are delighted to deliver funds which will enable them to continue to do so. The event was also a wonderful platform to showcase young local talent. We welcomed local performers Shannon Feely and Lois Paterson, both of whom entertained the Tea & Tipples guests.
