Tea in the garden: Barton-on-Sea

Jacqui Massie's holds her annual afternoon party.

Every year in June, Jacqui Massie hosts a Friday afternoon party in her garden in Barton-on-Sea with the help of a team of friends. 

This year the sun shone, bringing extra sparkle – and along came a hundred guests.

Alongside tea and refreshments were stalls, books, cakes, jewellery, plants and bric-a-brac.

There were also games, notably the fabulously named 'Guess the weight of the guy on the gate', this year being the 22nd edition.

Overall, Jacqui and the team raised over £770 for Christian Aid.

Events like this are so pleasing to hear about – especially when there are also photos. It's great to see so much variety around the region.

If you're organising an event to raise funds for Christian Aid, do send in photos and a few sentences summarising your activities: it’s great to share what’s going on as it enthuses and inspires others.
