Join us for Afternoon Tea to Support Kinghorn RNLI
Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat Fundraising Branch are inviting you to join them for a 1920s style Afternoon Tea on Saturday, 23rd September.
After hugely successful previous sell-out events, the date returns to the 2017 fundraising calendar.
The 1920s themed event takes place in Kinghorn Church Hall, starting at 2pm prompt, when afternoon tea will be served to the sounds of One Heart vocal group.
Kinghorn lifeboat fundraising committee chairperson, Sheona Smith said, ‘This year, our theme will be the 1920s and we will have prizes for the best dressed Flapper, and most Dapper Gent!
‘The event is open to over 18s only, and Prohibition Cocktails and prosecco will be available. We will also have an art auction for paintings which have been donated.
‘This will be an afternoon to take you back to the days of your parents and grandparents, whilst having great fun for a good cause. Nowadays it costs around £485,000 per day to run the RNLI charity.’
Tickets are selling well for this event and are available from Kinghorn Community Centre, the Dragon’s Den, and committee members. There will be no tickets available on the door. All proceeds will go the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
