Edwardian fete a success

AN EDWARDIAN garden fete attended by 700 people has raised more than £6,000 for a Harrogate charity.

The event, held at Broughton Hall for the Carers’ Resource, has been hailed a great success as it proved the biggest fundraiser of the year to date.

The fete also acted as the launch of an internet auction on www.ebay.co.uk for two prized items, a Downton Abbey photo signed by all the cast, as well as a Silver Cross hand-made Kensington pram.

The income from these sought-after items will help boost the final total further.
