A FUND-RAISING Afternoon Tea and string quartet event took place at Alton Castle.
A spokesman from Alton Castle said: "The event went very well and was fully booked, and everybody enjoyed the fabulous sandwiches and vast variety of cakes.
"The string quartet, Take Four, entertained the guests with a fabulous selection of classic and popular music, which was sponsored by Mark Deaville of The Anchor Inn, Tean. This was the first time such an event was held at Alton Castle and raised vital funds for the children's centre."
Forthcoming fund-raising events which are taking place include on Sunday, June 8, a 10 and 30-mile sponsored cycle ride at Alton Castle. On Thursday, July 3, a Golf Day is taking place in aid of Alton Castle at Uttoxeter Golf Club.
