Local resident Michelle Vanlint is aiming to raise close to £10k for Haven House Children’s Hospice at her annual tea and cake party in the garden of her South Woodford home this summer. “The event gets bigger each year and I need the support and help of the community in order to make this year’s event bigger and better than the last,” said Michelle, who raised over £8k in 2018. The event – which will take place at 12 Derby road on 14 June from 11am to 6pm – will be the 14th party Michelle has hosted in aid of the Woodford Green charity. “Please get in touch if you can help with raffle prizes or baking. Help on the day before or on the day will be greatly appreciated. And if any business would like to sponsor the Pimms tent, I would love to hear from them.” Michelle’s fundraising efforts have been growing in recent years, with the party generating £5k in 2017, £4k in 2016 and just under £3k in 2015. “It’s such a big event now I need more hands to help!” Email msvanlint@yahoo.co.uk
