Running tea parties for local elderly people is one of SVB’s longest running projects. This year’s annual Christmas Tea Party will be held in Rathbone Hall on Saturday 3rd December. It is an event which is organised by a group of volunteers and aims to welcome members of the elderly community together and provide them with an afternoon of food, fun and games (Bingo is always a winner). It gives both students and the local elderly a chance to befriend one another and enjoy a nice chat over a plate of sandwiches and a few Christmas carols.
The Christmas tea party is an annual tradition and has been running since the 1950’s, when it was then organised by Student Community Action (today’s SVB). It has always proved a popular event; and we hope that this year will be as successful as it has been in the previous years and that it is enjoyed by all those in attendance and those who made the day possible.
