A PENSIONERS club held an afternoon tea party to raise money for the charity SCOPE.
Brinsley Retired Persons’ Club sold plants and held a raffle which together raised £150.
Broxtowe Mayor Pay Lally and Mayoress Lynda Lally went along and the group had tea, coffee, scones and jam.
Club members asked Shirley Butler, who has raised £26,000 for SCOPE trekking around the world, if they could use her garden to host the party.
Mrs Butler said: “The mayor was very generous to the cause and he bought a lot of plants,” she said.
“He also made a lot of noise about my garden and how nice it was, which I was pleased about!”
Brinsley Retired Persons’ Club meet once a month. They have speakers for entertainment, which is how they met Mrs Butler.
