It was as though the sun knew to shine across South Yorkshire for the STEPS Rehabilitation Fabulous Summer Tea Party, which raised a brilliant total of £382 for Horatio’s Garden!
Organised by Jules Leahy for staff, residential clients at the centre and a few friends and family, the event was a huge success and everyone embraced being able to enjoy an afternoon outside in the centre’s garden in friendly, familiar company.
STEPS Rehabilitation is a purpose-built facility which offers intensive, ongoing rehabilitation for clients recovering from neurological and multiple trauma injuries, enabling people to reach their full potential and return home as soon as possible.
STEPS Rehabilitation provides specialist nursing care and intensive neurorehabilitation for people affected by life-changing injuries, therefore STEPS appreciate how Horatio’s Garden helps people throughout their time in hospital and beyond, which is why they generously decided to get involved in the Fabulous Summer Tea Party fun. Moreover, it was also a brilliant way to simply bring people together!
The event went really well, with the joyful spirit of the occasion artfully captured by a professional photographer, who kindly shared a few photos of the afternoon with us.
Being so warm, Jules and the team decided to really make a day of it, hosting a barbecue to complement the afternoon tea element. Naturally there was plenty of delicious food, including a rather enticing lemon drizzle cake that was popular with everyone in attendance!
As an extra treat, there was live music courtesy of Sheffield’s fantastic Forever Steel Band too, which lent the occasion a summery, uplifting atmosphere which could be felt right across the garden.
With the afternoon coming to a close, the team decided to make one final fundraising push, hosting a marvellous raffle to raise even more funds for the charity. They were certainly successful and there were plenty of happy prize winners ending the day on a high!
We’re enormously grateful to Jules, the STEPS Rehabilitation team and to everyone who attended and generously donated during the event. Every penny raised really counts and will make a difference to lots of people’s lives across the UK.
