Charity afternoon tea is a grand affair

Mazars Harry'sRainbowBuckinghamshire and Bedfordshire’s business women have raised £1,000 for charity following a ladies afternoon tea event at the Woburn Hotel.

Organised by the Milton Keynes office of international accountancy firm Mazars, it was in aid of Harry’s Rainbow which is committed to supporting bereaved children and their families in the Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.

It was established by Lee Mould and his wife Odette whose son Harry passed away at the age of just five after a sudden illness, leaving the family including his twin Jessica to mourn his loss.

Thanking Mazars, Odette, the charity’s operations manager, said: “We had a lovely time and the amount raised was fantastic!

“We know intimately the sheer devastation to our lives caused when such a tragedy occurs and how difficult it can be to help and support your children through their pain, grief and loss at the same time as trying to deal with your own.”

Mazars marketing manager Debbi Armstrong, said: “We hold these events three times a year – it’s a great opportunity for our female clients, prospects and contacts to get together and meet like-minded individuals to raise money for a good cause.

“We are delighted to support Harry’s Rainbow this time – It’s about spreading the word and getting more people aware of the invaluable work they undertake.”

The charity provides resources, group activities, trips and family outings and access to a monthly Rainbow group which provides crafts, games, sports and social facilities.
