The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is coming to Berwickshire County Show, in Mainsgate Park, Duns, on Saturday (August 4) courtesy of Berwickshire Housing Association’s ‘Teapot on Tour’ initiative.
Over the past two year’s BHA’s Teapot on Tour has attended a variety of community events throughout Berwickshire including the County Show, Duns Summer Festival, Chirnside Civic Week, Coldstream Civic Week, Eyemouth Herring Queen, etc.
At these events the public get the chance to chat with BHA staff whilst enjoying some refreshment for a small donation that is given back to the community. The events prove very popular and feedback from staff has been excellent.
This year at Duns Show the theme of BHA’s stand will be ‘The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ so come along and join them. Look out for special guests Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts and, of course, the Mad Hatter himself!
There will be information bags, goodies for the children, a colouring competition and refreshments as well as a special cake raffle.
The Tenant Volunteers will also be well represented and they will be running a Lucky Dip for the children who visit the stand.
All funds raised by BHA and the Tenant Volunteers will go The Fire Fighters Charity.
BHA’s Teapot on Tour will also be at the Eyemouth Twilight Run on Friday, August 24, the Silver Sunday event in Duns Volunteer Hall on Sunday, October 7, and at Coldstream’s Poppy Project in November.
