Mad Hatter's Tea Party

We are all mad here!

Apr 27 2013

At the AGM last October, the children and young people pondered on what they could do to support fundraising efforts. One idea was to hold an afternoon party. This could have remained a ‘nice’ idea on paper, but, with lots of creative thought, detailed preparation and Vanessa’s superb guiding hand, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party took place on Saturday 27th April. Over forty children and young people attended what was an excellent event based on Alice in Wonderland. Guests were greeted at the door by very large Ace of Spades and Ace of Hearts card soldiers. Crawling down the ‘rabbit hole’ (one of the multi-coloured children’s play tunnels) they entered the party hall which was decorated with playing cards bunting and gold keys. Party hats were created out of newspaper and games included: pin the grin on the Cheshire Cat, Off With Her Head, throwing bean bags into the Mad Hatter’s Hat and sugar cubes into tea cups, stacking playing card ‘castles’, flamingo croquet and a relay race called Teapot Tag. Overall it was a joyful afternoon, bringing children of all ages and young folk together AND raised nearly £300. Well done and thank you to the Mad Hatter’s team!
