AN ‘open house’ charity day was held at River jointly with The Lady mgazine with all proceeds going to The Alzheimer’s Society.

The event was attended by a host of ladies ranging from teenagers to octogenarians, who took in a wide variety of different stalls ranging from hand-painted furniture, beautiful jewellery and clothing, including bespoke gowns to a ‘New to You’ pop-up clothes shop.

Three bouquets of scented roses were donated for the raffle while a traditional afternoon English tea was enjoyed by all.

The stall holders donated a percentage of their takings and just over £500 was raised.
