SMOKED salmon sandwiches with the crusts cut off were the order of the day when two churches joined forces for a Tea at the Ritz fundraising event.

Members of Gosberton Methodist and Spalding’s Broad Street Methodist churches dressed up as waitresses to bring the height of sophistication to more than 40 people who dropped in for afternoon tea.

Classical music was provided by David Hicken on piano.

The event raised a total of £300, which has been split between Broad Street’s Vision 21 refurbishment fund and the St Barnabas hospice charity.

Volunteer waitress Belinda Taylor said: “We had a lot of fun and received some very positive feedback. We were delighted with how much we raised.”
