PROCEEDS from a strawberry tea party raised over £200 for a church.

Driffield Salvation Army held the tea party on Saturday, August 18, at the church centre on The Mount, and raised £265.09 for the church funds.

The event, which also included a book and cake fair, kicked off at 2pm, and saw a good attendance, with the hall constantly buzzing with people.

New territorial envoy for the Driffield Salvation Army, Andrea Robinson, said: “It went very well and we had people in before we were officially open.

“It was lovely and there were people there who had never been into the Salvation Army building.”

Andrea and David Robinson moved to Driffield on Friday, July 20, and now hold the joint ministry at the Salvation Army, which is also their first appointment in the role.

The Salvation Army group are preparing for their harvest supper, to be held on Saturday, October 6.
