Afternoon tea and fizz was the order of the day at the event hosted at Penny Black bar in Burnley town centre.

The event was organised by charity CARES which was launched in 2020 just before the start of the pandemic.

CARES stands for (Cancer Assessment Rapid Early Support), which aims to support hospital charity ELH & Me towards raising £500,000 towards a new endoscopy machine for Burnley General Hospital’s cancer unit.
