An EnRich Tea Party is the latest fundraiser to be held for a Barnsley-based charity.
Cakes, cuppas and a camper van are on the menu for the event on Saturday June 18th at the garden and studio of artist and sculptor Michelle Clarke-Stables.
Michelle is hosting the event at 102 Spark Lane in Mapplewell, S75 6AD, from 2pm – 5pm. She said: “EnRich has supported me with a grant for a creative project and I wanted to say thank you by supporting them. My studio and new sculpture workspace will be open to visitors at the event”.
EnRich Chair of Trustees Josie Whiteley said: “It will be a lovely afternoon out with artistic activities for all ages thanks to Michelle’s Home-the Van Project and music will be provided by local musicians.”
“We have had lots of lovely raffle prizes offered and promises of delicious cakes too, people are so kind and very supportive of EnRich”.
A weekend in a 1970’s VW camper van has been kindly donated as a fantastic raffle prize by Katie and Frazer Oldfield from Penistone. Katie and Frazer have just set up their new business hiring out vans for camping, weddings and proms and were happy to be helping such a good cause.
All are welcome at the Tea Party. “We just ask those attending to give us a call on 07718123402 or email us to reserve a place on EnRich2013@hotmail.com so we don’t run out of cake!” said Josie.
All the money raised enables EnRich to help performing arts and creative arts activities in the town by offering financial support. Anyone studying or living in Barnsley, of any age, can apply to the Charity to request support and should email EnRich2013@hotmail.com in the first instance with an outline of their idea.
EnRich was set up in memory of Richard Tolson – “Rich T” – who was the Head of Music and Performing Arts at Barnsley College until his death in September 2013.
