FRIENDS gathered to remember loved ones and raise money for a bereavement charity.

Rachel Hayward, who lives in Abbeydale, lost her husband, Cliff and two close friends, Mel and Karen, within days of each other to cancer in 2004.

All the families had young children who were helped by Winston’s Wish through their tough times. The money will also go to Macmillan.

To mark the 10th anniversary, Rachel held an afternoon tea, plus a raffle with top prizes up for grabs on Saturday. A total of £600 was raised for the charities from the event.

Rachel’s friend Hazel Obee is also running the London Marathon next month to raise money for the charities.

    "Rachel throws charity tea party in Abbeydale for a bereavement" What a badly formulated headline!
