Cookes Furniture has once again showed its generosity as the business prepares to host its next charity event.

The retailer will be raising money for a local cancer charity by hosting a celebratory afternoon cream tea on Thursday 8 September.

The fun will start at Cookes in-store restaurant from 2pm on Thursday 8 September with a afternoon of live entertainment.

Tickets cost £12.5o each, with all proceeds going to the Breast Friends charity, a support group based at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.

Vanessa Hoe, marketing director at Cookes Furniture, commented: “As a family business, we are very passionate about supporting the local community and enjoy working with local charities.

“We are really looking forward to hosting this event for Breast Friends and admire all of the wonderful work they do for people affected by breast cancer.

“As last year’s afternoon tea for Breast Friends was such a success, we are expecting a great turnout for this event and hope to raise a record amount of money for such a fantastic cause.”
