On Bank Holiday Monday we hosted a fundraiser to celebrate MacMillan being 100 years old. The event was posh afternoon tea with ladies in hats etc. The weather wasn’t kind to us with constant drizzle, we put up the hotel marquees as well as some loaned ones and we were able to keep everyone under cover. The marquees were decorated with bunting, the tables had cloths and flowers - afternoon tea was laid out with an abundance of sandwiches and cakes. To cap it all there was jugs of Pimms and glasses of Champagne to supplement the tea and coffee- I know which I prefer !
The event raised £1500.00 for MacMillan and we are proud to share our 100 years with them. Sysonby Knoll was built in 1911 by Mr Thurman- obviously a good year.
