Cream Tea & Crime Afternoon Raises Over £1,400 for Veterans

On Thursday 3rd August, 86 individuals attended a Cream Tea and Crime afternoon at Care for Veterans, helping to raise over £1,400 for the charity.

Amongst those attending were 15 of Care for Veterans own residents who were especially excited to tuck into a cream tea and eager to hear from the chosen speaker Colin Turner.

Pots of tea and coffee were aplenty, with a delicious selection of homemade scones, cakes and treats for guests to enjoy. Once everyone had settled, crime specialist speaker Colin Turner took up a microphone to share some of the darkest and most intriguing cases he had worked on. Colin has worked as a clerk of the court, prosecutor and defence advocate, examiner in criminal law for the Law Society and an advisor to the BBC on a crime series.

Sponsors Stanford Legal Services kindly supported the raffle prizes available to attendees, which brought further excitement once Colin had finished sharing a number of true crime anecdotes. Director of Stanford Legal Services Sarah Wood commented, “It was so lovely to see a full event, colourful and so well attended, and how delightful to be back with inside events at last!”.

Community Fundraiser and event organiser Myra Jasper said, “it was so wonderful to see so many people come together to support the disabled veterans in our care. We are so grateful to all of our attendees, volunteers, our sponsor Stanford Legal Services and speaker Colin Turner for making the day so successful!”
