Southport afternoon tea
raises lorra lorra money for cancer research
AN award winning Cilla Black tribute
artist has helped Southport fundraisers raise more than ₤1,200 for charity North
West Cancer Research at an annual afternoon tea event.
Julie A Scott the artist from Liverpool, was made famous when she appeared on
ITV's talent show New Faces in the early 80's. More than 30 years on, the
talented singer was named as the top Cilla Black tribute act, at the National
Tribute Awards 2017.
Julie performed a mixture of the late Cilla Black's greatest songs to 170 guests
at the Hill Top Golf Club, while they enjoyed afternoon tea refreshments
including:- cakes, finger sandwiches, tea and prosecco.
The event was organised by the Southport based fundraising committee for North
West Cancer Research who hold the afternoon tea every year, raising in excess of
₤1,000 each time through ticket sales and raffles.
All money raised will be donated to North West Cancer Research, to fund life
saving cancer research across the region. Over the next 5 years the charity has
committed to funding more than ₤13million worth of research, including projects
at nearby University of Liverpool.
Olive Cutts, Chair of the Southport fundraising committee, said:- "The
Afternoon Tea was a huge success. All the guests enjoyed Julie's amazing vocals
and the raffle winners walked away with some great prizes including Champagne,
beauty vouchers and afternoon tea vouchers. Hillside Golf Club let us use the
room at no charge, as they do for many of our events throughout the year. We are
very appreciative of their kindness and help that they provide on the day, I
would like to extend a huge thank you to all of them."
Sara Cooper, Committee Engagement and Events Executive, said:- "It's great
to see how much fun people can have whilst raising money for a great cause.
Olive and the Southport fundraisers host some amazing events throughout the year
and their hard work is greatly appreciated by all at the charity."
The next event from Olive and the Southport committee will be a Pimm's and
Canap? Afternoon, on Wednesday, 13 September 2017. The event will take place in
Ainsdale in the lush gardens of Joan and Niall Roy's property.
Tickets to the Pimm's and Canap? Afternoon cost ₤10 and the event will start at
